I've had good results with the canon wd58 on a pdx10. Full zoom through and very little distortion.... you must ofcourse use a 37>58mm converter.

With the large battery on the back, it keeps a fair balance to the camera.

Sorry, have been out of town a couple days and am just catching up. You might want to read the following thread which discusses the Century .5x and includes an e-mail that century sent to an unhappy owner of this lens. They say it was designed for lower resolution 1 chip cameras and is not suitable for the PDX-10. I don't have any personal experience with this lens however, and can't be sure it's the one you are considering. Caveat emptor...

The Century 0.5 then is probably no better than the 'low grade' Sony I already have. So I might be going for the Century 0.65 but I won't make the choice until Juan has checked them both out with his PDX10. Thank you Boyd, your help is great and all the people at this site are so cool and willing to help. Love this place.
