Default Help...Which Wide Angle to buy for the S7000?

Ordered an S7000 from Beach (599.00 - best price I could find, and yes I'll be waiting 2-3 more weeks to get it, but it is worth that price). The only thing I don't like about the S7000 is the 35-210MM. I want wider!

Beach is telling me that the best Wide Angle for the S7000 is the Digital Optics .45X Pro w/macro - 52MM, and the Sakar Lens Barrel Adapter for Fuji and HP - 55/52MM.

riiiiight.... I'm thinking .45 of 35MM = 15.75MM (Thats freakin fish-eye wide!) :shock: I've never used anything under 28MM. Me thinks that I'm going to see black corners in all my photos. (aka... vignetting)

I see no problem with the Fuji Finepix WLFX9 0.79x Wide Angle. That would give me my 28MM which I'm used to. sooo.....

What do you think??? Is there a better Wide Angle??? TIA!

Hmmm... how about the Oly's WCON 0.7X converter... that gets it down to 24.5mm .... a little wider than the regular 28mm.

Since it's also 55mm guess it fits just fine!
