Default Sony F717 with non Sony Wide lenses

Hello, I am the happy owner of a F717, but I'm interested in getting a wide angle conversion lense. Only thing is I'm poorer now than when I got the camera so I'm looking on Ebay for 58mm Lenses, rather than looking to Sony for new ones.

I've found a Nizo Ultrawide II going cheap with a 58mm lens. Its between 0.5x and 0.7x, the owner does not know.

Now I know its originally for a camcorder, but what I don't know is if my F717 is going to like it. Will it be able to focus manually or auto. And how good should the picture be? I think Nizo is quite good quality, but I'm new to this!

This is all I know about it and the web doesn't turn up much regarding Nizo lens construction and compatibility.
