The image quality is superb.
Beau Chevassus
It's hard to complain about any aspect of this thing, when the optics are this good -- but the device has its annoyances.
M. Clemens
The threads are machined to fit the HF-S100 exactly, mounting the lens flush against the camera with no gap.

Here's what you get in the package:
* WD-H58 lens
* 2 plastic caps:
- 77.5mm front cap
- 58mm rear cap
* Synthetic leather, drawstring pouch

Fit & Finish:
The all metal body is substantial and heavy. The finish is a black, lightly brushed, non-glossy, metal finish. The threads are machined to fit the HF-S100 exactly, mounting the lens flush against the camera with no gap. The front of the lens is NOT threaded! You won't be able to attach any filters to the front! The 2 provided caps fit very tightly to the lens. The outside diameter of the front lens is 77.5mm - according to the imprinting on the inside of the front cap.

Form & Function:
Mounting the lens is simple, although because of the weight and size of the lens, I recommend supporting your camera on something sturdy! Once mounted, the fit is exact and flush - with no filters, no stacking (more on this later.) The HF-S100 definitely get's a facelift with this lens... it dominates the front view of the camera. Even with the LCD open and your hand in the strap, there's no mistaking that you have a wide angle lens attached. With it mounted, the HF-S100 tends to tip forward with your hand in the strap. Even with the big BP-827 battery on the back, the whole rig feels front biased now.

Performance:
It does what it was designed to do - give you a wide angle view! It executes its function perfectly. However, there is a little bit of "barrel distortion" (I think that's what they call it) on the far left & right of the shot. For example, when shooting a scene through a doorway you'll notice that the door frame on either side is not straight, but rather has an ever-so-slight bend/curve to it.

I got this for my new Canon HF S100 and just be aware that it is big and heavy and really adds to the overall size.

Besides that the quality is top notch and you can still use the zoom all the way.

This is high-quality one. It was a bit expensive, but it makes very nice shots and was exactly what we expect out of it. We use it for Canon HF S10

As others have mentioned, this changed the balance of the camcorder. It's hard to complain about any aspect of this thing, when the optics are this good -- but the device has its annoyances. The lens cap is horribly difficult to get on and off. Canon should have put front mounted threads and had a clip-in cap. The glass is *right up front* ready for every fingerprint accident.

Massive, beautiful glass that does its job, in a slightly annoying form.

I had to log on and write a review. I was in Olympia WA yesterday at the Capitol building--doing some filming and getting in trouble with security. The usual for the more adventure-esque videographers (you know who you are).

The step-up ring I had was pretty cheap, and I didn't screw this lens on tight enough. My tripod clipped something, jostling my camera, and [*cue sick feeling*] my Canon WD-H58 Wide Converter Camcorder Lens went plummeting to the ground. It bounced. From 6 feet up. On a solid marble floor. Gasps and face-palms from passerby confirmed that this was not good.

The 58mm UV filter (still attached to this lens) was shattered. But this Canon WD-H58 lens [*cue angelic singing*] is spotless.

While yes, this lens is heavy and feels like a crystal ball, the construction is that of a M4 Sherman tank. The image quality is superb. You will not regret purchasing this wide angle, especially if you can score one on Craigslist.

FYI, my setup at this moment was a Panasonic HS300 camera (43mm threads) with a 43-58mm step-up ring, then a 58mm filter, then this wide angle lens.

I repeat: It bounced on a marble floor from six feet up. Lenses aren't supposed to survive that.

This lens is a great addition to the canon HF series (HF HFS, 10 , 11, 200, etc) - any of the 58mm lens cameras.

I'm finding that canon does not always make accessories forever so if you have found that you can not zoom out as far as you would like and need to step back to frame a shot, you should buy this lens now while it is available. For example, I bought the lanc adapter for my camera and a month later it was gone from the product line - no longer made. I have lanc controllers and I'm glad I got it when I did. This used to be a prime product lens straight from canon to amazon, now you must get it from a camera store.

The important thing is if you feel your camera's zoomed all the way out is not wide enough this is the best way to fix it - works through the whole zoom range. Yes, it lacks filter threads, but with HD you have so many pixels that a wide angle shot is needed to fill the screen.

Since I mounted this to my HFS10 camera I have not removed it. It's that good.

I own the HFS20 (and a GL2). I was hesitant at first to by such an expensive wide angle converter, but remember that when you buy a lens from the maker of your specific camera, they spent the time in R&D to be sure it works properly with your camera. I have used Raynox products, which are pretty good, but they aren't much cheaper and good luck getting customer service out of them. I know that if I EVER have an issues with any Canon product they are one quick phone call away with a real live person giving me support. I am by no means selling the product, but bear in mind that this is a Genuine Canon product and it's Japanese made camera optics and you will get what you pay for.

The biggest downfall to this converter is the lack of front threads, but there are clamp on style adapter rings sold for 77mm-80mm lenses and will work just fine for attaching filters. The other downfall is the lack of compatible lens hoods, I suggest going with the 77mm Cavision Pro wide angle box hood. With some very basic modifications you'll have really quite a nice cover for it and the ability to add filters.

I give it fours stars b/c of the lack of threads for a lens hood, but lets be honest, most lens hoods on a wide angle converter end up vignetting, unless you go with a box style.

It's a great buy for a very nice piece of optics!
