I search a good wide angle converter lens for my FZ5,it shall be in 55mm diameter because I don't like using a ring.:|

Do you know any? The price shall be around 100$.

Thanks!

I just ordered today a Schneider Xenar x0.7, with a 55mm mount. Seems to be a very good one, according to the few reviews I found on the Internet.... Will try to post pics ASAP.

Ptit bonjour de Paris, danm_cool !!

I received this wonderful piece of glass last Saturday... first impression : amazingly light for a rather bulky add-on lens, the satin-black coat matches the FZ5's look, as you can see on this photo....
I paid it EUR 137 (with shipping)....

results on next posts:?:?
