Default Wide angle lens for my Finepix 5000 under $75?

Anyone know of a budget wide angle lens that is decent enough, but not expensive as hell?
I was budgeting under $75 for it.

I got finepix5000

I have a Sony MVC FD91 that uses 52mm lenses, which are nearly the same size as the lens adaptor on the S5000, so you might try some of the Sony lenses. I've seen a lens adaptor ring to go from 52-55 for very little money, I think about ten bucks, which would make the Sony lenses fit the Fuji. I have the Sony 2X telephoto lens and it seems to be a pretty decent lens, at least it works well on the Sony. I'd say their wide angle would be ok, too. I only paid 60.00 for the Sony lens from a local shop.

On a related note, the S5000 will soon be my main camera too, so I'll be hunting down the lens adaptor ring myself.
