Does anyone have this lens with a camera that have a 36mm lens or less??

Do you see vignetting in the corners?

Is it a good lens?

Thank you :-)

no, but I see you are using the Olympus telephoto....the Olympus wide conversion wcon-8 (.8x wider) works great on my little Olympus c-5000...dropping it from 38 to about 31mm....although I have to run at nowider than f3.4 to4.0 or it is too soft on the edges...there is no vignetting and no bending or fish eye at anytime...unlike my cheap kenko .5whichis trulyawful, the walls were bending (the kenko2x telephoto works great though)....

keep in mind this is a huge lens...55mm to about 110mm(?)...the front does not have threads on it for filters and I use a 55mm polarizing lens on the rear...also because of its size it blocksmost of the flash, I use a dedicated Olympus on the hot shoe...keep in mind this lens is heavy!

I purchased mine on eBay from Olympus.....for only about $30...it retails for about $180

from what I've read, this wide angle converter may be the best out there
