One other point the Sanyo Semi-Fisheye lens is also a macro lens. If you screw off the front part it turns into a macro lens. Another thing it is much smaller than the Sanyo wide angle lens, although I think you can zoom more with the wide angle lens. Lastly the Raynox 6600 pro lens is very big and heavy compared to the Sanyo lens and makes the camera much too big to fit in your pocket.

Thank you very much, this help me to make a definitive decision: I think I'll go ahed with Sanyo HD2000 + Sanyo semi fish-eye. Best regards.

Default news from fisheye...

I've bought the Sanyo semi fisheye lens (.4) which I use on a HD2000

Results are :
-convenient in terms of size ;
-pleasant angle of view ;
-good color rendering ;
BUT
-few zoomable in video, unzoomable in photo mode ;
-poor images in terms of sharpness, blurry on the rounding edges, even with no zooming at all and even in photo mode at full resolution ;
-satysfying sharpness on centered close shots (with no zooming), or with the macro part, only.

In two words, funny but disapointing in the end.

As you can't really zoom, I still wonder wether a fisheye adapter would do the job in a better manner in terms of sharpness...

Any idea?
