I found this website while searching for lenses for H1 cameras. Was wondering if any of the H1 owners have any of these lenses or even tried it on their H1s

Thanks :-)

After waiting patiently for reviews regarding the Raynox DCR 2020Pro, I've decided to get one so that I can see for myself if it's going to be a big disappointment or not .... NOT !!!!

I am very happy with it

You can look at the photos in one of my galleries ...

I found from experience that the only lens to use on the H1 is Sonys own lens.

You will be dissapoointed with anything else.

I agree... stick with Sony, however I did buy a Raynox 250 closeup lens and it works great. Canon 500D works well with H1 also for macro.

This is why I decided to buy a lens from a company that offered more options than Sony and will write a full review very soon (when I am done experimenting with it).

Ok,
I've been using the Raynox HD-7000 PRO wide angle lens with my Sony H1 for about a week now and have my review:

Out of the Box:
The Lens comes with a lens cap for the front and back of the lens as well as a flexible soft case to keep the lens safe inside.

Construction:
The lens itself feels very well made and has some nice weight to it. It feels like a very nice quality lens. It attaches directly to the lens adapter that came with our Sony H1 (which I wish were made of alloy/metal rather than plastic..but that is part of the H1 and not this review).

Attached is an image of what the lens looks like when attached to the H1 (review to continue in next post).

Picture Quality:
I decided to take a photo of a low lit room that would show if the lens was not letting as much light in as had I not used the lens. So, I took two photos (attached) both at the same setting for comparrison:
Manuel Mode - 1/30th of a second at f2.8 and iso 400 - no zoom

Here is the shot without the lens attached:
