I have been trying out this TiFFEN 0.56x lens for a number of days and have found that it is impossible to achieve any kind of decent focus at the edges of the photo for anything at a distance. The center of te photos are very sharp. I understand that this is a very wide angle lens, but am I missing something as far as the camera settings? TiFFEN lists the lens for the W-7

NOW THE TRUTH COMES OUT! I returned the lens to Tiffen who responded by telling me that the lens itseff was excellent but the adapter was NOT one that they manufacture and was the reason for the poor preformance. Evidently they had removed the adapter that they had sold with these lenses from the marketplace and no longer supported the Sony W cameras. WHAT A DECISION? What it means is that I am stuck with a rip-off! Thanks Tiffen! If we can not trust you can you expect future sales?
