Default 0.7x Wide Converter what should I get? (ebay budget)

I have FujiFilm FinePix S5000 with the adapter for 55mm lenses.
I saw somebody telling abother guy to check out Olympus WCON-07 0.7x Wide Converter. Anyone know of an equivalent. I have about $100 in my budget for that, but at the same time I would like to get as sharp of the image as possible (geometry is not as important).

The Olympus WCON-0.7X is a good lens with a rear thread of 55mm. But, it does not mean you can use it on your Fuji cam without vignetting due to the lens design characteristics (of your Fuji). Go to your local store and test before you buy, BTW, $100.00 may not be enough for the WCON-0.7X.
