This is a great lens for my sony-dscH1. The only problem I have with it is that if you use the flash that is on the camera when the lens is attached, it creates a round shadow at the bottom of the picture due to the fact that the lens is pretty large and the flash sits low.

As a convert from film SLR's to a fixed lens digital, I thought the wide angle attachment would be just the thing. I tend to take a lot of room interior and architectural shots with a wide angle lens - a 24mm on a 35mm camera being my favorite.

After shooting numerous test shots with and without the wide angle attachment, I seriously can't see much of a difference - especially with a fairly short focusing distance - say 6 - 10 feet.

Additionally, screwing the fairly heavy piece of glass onto the sun shade of the camera (the only way it mounts) makes for a very large, unbalanced camera hanging from your neck.

If you really need a wide angle, save your money and buy a true interchangeable lens camera.

The wide angle works as advertised and is of very high quality. Don't expect a HUGE difference with it as width is concerned but it does help. Overall it is a high quality lens and is everything the manufacturer says it is.

It is a good lens. Close-ups don't get much wider, but it is very good for landscapes.

The front protection cover could be more tight, so it would not fall so easy.

The transport bag is good too.

I have a Sony CyberShot DSC-H1 that came with an adapter tube (56mm to 52mm). I thought it would be great to extend the power of the 12X lens by buying this 0.7X wide angle converter and a 1.7X tele converter lenses, also made by Sony. Both converter lenses stated that they had 58mm threads to mount to the camera, so I bought a 52mm to 58mm adapter ring, thinking that one adapter ring would work with both of them. Well, the 1.7X tele converter mounted on the adapter ring just fine. But this 0.7X wide angle converter would not! The problem is that the threads for mounting this lens are recessed about a quarter of an inch. That means I will need, not an adapter ring, but an adapter TUBE just to mount this lens! Thus far, I have taken some great pictures with the 1.7X tele converter lens. But I cannot even mount this 0.7X wide angle converter on my camera! And I have no idea where I can find an adapter TUBE for 52mm (camera) to 58mm (lens) adaption. It's probably a great lens. Too bad I can't use it!

This lens is of good quality and does exactly as it should, increase the angle in which you are taking a picture. The first test I did was with my back against the wall looking into my kitchen. With the lens, my Sony DSC-H10 appeared as if it were five feet further back than without the lens!

A must get if you want group shots or absolutely stunning landscape pictures. Don't believe some of the other posters belief that this lens "doesn't do that much." If you are a prosumer or above, you know what to expect and what not to expect out of a wide angle lens. This did exactly as it claimed, it changed my focal length from 38mm to ~26.2mm (35mm scale). Great purchase, don't pass this one up.

With this lens, the H10 really blows the Panasonic TZ5 out of the water. No need to get a wide-angle camera when this one can be adapted in so many ways.

As other reviews have stated, if you need to use the flash with the picture, you may get a half round shadow (the outline of the lens actually) on the floor in your picture. When attached to the camera the lens gets in the way of the bottom of the flash and can cause a shadow in your picture. As a Real Estate Home Stager, most of my shots are inside and require a flash--so this could turn out to be a problem for me.

This was the biggest farce I have purchased from a Sony product. The lens is so big it makes handeling the camera horrible and the width of the viewed image is not that much better than the original lens. Big mistake.
