Wide angle adapter for Canon YH16x7 IX12
 
Hello all,
I'm working with the pana DVC200 with the Canon YH16x7 IX12 lens.
I wanted to know which Wide angle adapter i can use with this lens.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Asaf,

The wide angle adapters form Canon itself are very expensive. They cost more then the lens you own. Maybe it would be better to purchase a new lens instead of adding a Canon adapter.

Canon's wide converter W 80 HD + 85 II adapter ($4.840 + $370 list price)

Or Canon's wide attachment WA 75 HD + 85 II adapter ($2.2910 + $370 list price)

Schneider Optics also makes very good adapters.

The page says YH17x7KRS, but I guess that must be wrong because that lens doesn't exist.

Asaf,

Below is the .8x (20% wider, zoom through) lens that you need. The 85mm clamp-on adapter ring is included:

We also make a .5x wide angle and a Fisheye if you are interested.
