This is the most amazing lens I have ever seen. The picture quality resulting from mounting it unto my Panasonic Lumix FZ 50 is unmatched. The field of view is incredible and there is no distortion whatsoever.

My husband received this lens for Christmas and he's really enjoyed using this. It's exactly what he wanted in a lens. I would recommend this to any photography enthusiast.
 JohnPHman 2/9/2007
I use this lens for macro and occasionally for scenic shots. The clarity and shots I get are remarkable. The feel of this lens is incredible. It has this material that is easy to grip. The glass is also top notch.

Purchased lens to go with my Canon Powershot S3 IS. I'm not a pro, but gives great focus. Fits right on the 58mm thread of UV filter; no need to remove. Also looks like a UV filter could fit on the front of it. There's a lot of reviews on the web on the different lens available (some with picture taken with each). Definately check them out. If you're gonna do anything more than just pix of friends or once a year vacation photos, (for the price) this purchase was a no brainer.
 Jsilverj 3/15/2007
I love it!
 Al In Alabama 3/20/2007
I have used this lense for a lot of different purposes for work and for my personal use and the pictures with the wide angle sure are wonderful when I have wide pictures to take. The lens also feels incredible, as if I were holding something worth thousands of dollars.
 Sherry T. 7/8/2007
I own a Panasonic AG DVX100B. It is a high definition 3 ccd camcorder. I purchased this lens in a 72mm and let me tell you, I am ecstatic. It is incredibly well made and super wide. it does not curve the image and the edges are very sharp. I am very happy and applaud the recommendation from Jessica.
 Sid In Connecticut 7/10/2007
Great addition to my Canon S5is!!! Lens was recommended in lieu of a Canon .75x. Stated as wider and brighter. All true!! Thanks Nwv and Chester!
 Sasquatch In. 8/20/2007
Very powerful lens for use on my HV20. The edges are so sharp and crisp and the angle of view is to die for. Very impressed.
 Jack Mehani 9/21/2007
Wow. Took care of wide shots and close ups. excellent glass and feels like a solid lens. FYI, I have a Sony h2
 Jetty Miilo FR 11/14/2007
Good quality sharp images. Filter size of 82 is hard to find and expensive.
 hdouglas 11/19/2007
Fantastic lens when adapted to the Panasonic Lumix FZ50. Photos are sharp, clear and there is virtually no distortion. I gratefully acknowledge the suggestion of NWVD staff to consider this lens when I was prepared to purchase the Panasonic DMW LW55 wide angle lens instead.
 Glendolina 12/18/2007
NWV suggested this product and it is amazing. I have rental properties and I need a wide angle lens to capture precious photos, whether to rent or sell homes. I pondered and thought about this purchase. It is worth the investment. Clients are very drawn to the photos that I take and, indeed, gives me pride and confidence with my pictures. Thanks a lot !
 Mark M. 1/26/2008
Great product! Mark made this recommendation for my HV20 and it turned out amazing. The clarity is superb and the macro feature is stunning as well. Excellent buy.
 kansas jessica 2/2/2008
Incredible macro lens. Flowers, insects, real deatil. The best I have ever seen. Will submit photos to national geographic.
 JJ Kalispell 3/25/2008
I give this lens only 4 of 5 stars NOT because of quality but because it is a little heavy. I did try some less expensive lighterweight lenses that were horrendous. I appreciate this lens much more. I only wish it were lighter so that I can take it with me always. For now, I just use it when I really need a nice wide shot. The photos, however, are alot better with this lens than with the Sony lens my sister has.
 Mila M. 4/5/2008
This is a wonderful lens! Wanted to get a wide angle lens for my PowerShot S2 and NWV suggested this lens because they did not have a stock for the Canon lens that I ordered and it turned out that this is what I need. Takes great pictures and looks very sturdy. I don't mind it a little heavy. I even love the beautiful wooden box it came with it. Thanks Maurice!
 Fred/Milton 7/15/2008
Just what the doctor order. I've been looking for a len that will give me both wide angle and Micro. Super product will suggest to friends and family. Highly recommended
 C Jays Image 8/20/2008
All I can give is 5 stars, but well deserved! Originally I ordered the Sony Wide Angle Lens for my HDV FX1 camcorder... The next day, NWVDirect called to inform me it was on back order and apologized. But offered a better solution, which was the "CRYSTAL VISION LTD EDT HD 72mm .5x WIDE ANGLE LENS"... At first I was disappointed, that my original order was not available. But since I took the advice to substitute. MAN, WOULD I RECOMMEND IT! Just listen to everyone that testifies, including myself, this product works great. You can beat the clear image, no distortion, and did you see the great price with fast shipping service. Don't need to look further, if your serious about a wide angle lens, you may rest and no worries. GET THE CRYSTAL VISION. Thank you NWVDirect, and your sales team for being so knowledgeable. (You will receive my business again, with friends, and others)
 Sally 8/30/2008
i bought the lense.. i like it BUT i'm having problems using it. can someone help me with the exact setting...etc thank you
 KenMiaster 10/5/2008
I got this lens recently, took it out of the wooden box and started trying it out. This pro lens is unbelievable, not what i expected. orginally ordered a VCL DH0758 For sony H1 Camera found out there was a recall from sony glad i didn't get that lens. Thanks maurice.
 Doctor M 10/23/2008
Great lens. Perfect professional material ! Thanks !
 Damon 1/8/2009
I called NWV to buy a canon wide angle converter lens. .7x. NWV told me about this lens and how good this lens is rated. This lens is double the cost but, for the price you can't go wrong. I have a GL2 canon and the picture is clear even when I zoom in.(doesn't curve the image and the edges are clear) This is a amazing lens and the lens has 82mm threads for filters that most wide angle lens don't have. Plus, don't forget that this lens is a .5x which gives you around 20% more viewing area then the .7x. For me the price was high but the lens is worth it and I'm glad I bought it. Thanks NWV
 Matt M 4/8/2009
Originally I was very reserved when I was informed of the back order of the Panasonic DMW LA4 Conversion lens. I decided that I would give it a shot and I was quite impressed with the performance of this lens. Thank You NWD and thanks to the very patient customer rep who withstood my interogation!! I am very pleased with this product.
 Tom Kautz 9/14/2009
I purchased this lens in SanFrancisco from Tony at Web Camera, Inc. on Sept. 10, I now know what it is like to be in heaven with this equipment. Tony knows his stuff, and he is not a pushy guy. We need more foks like Tony, he helps serious camera bugs like me. Adios, Tom.
 Mark jonshon 11/4/2009
I was in vacation in San Francisco last week ,I was amaze about this Cristal Vision wide angle lens 0.5.it's really increase my angle of view.I think three times wider than normal.I do lots of lanscape and family gathering photography.the macro of the lens allow me to take object which is really close such as coins,stamps and any other detailed objects.eventhough I paid more than 1000 dollars from the store digital video store in fisherman with the help of the experty of Ricky .it's worthed.now lots of my friends in my country really amaze about the result about my photograp.thanks Ricky
 scott smith 5/24/2010
on march 17th my wife and I visited san francisco for our 10th anniversary. My wife is a photo hobbist and loves to take scenic pictures. while vacationing in san francisco we decided to check out some lenses in a photo shop located on the fishermans wharf. We stopped in an establishment by the name of KL Photo and was approached by a very welcoming associate, Roberto. He introduced us to a HD crystal vision lens and gave us a demonstration on the benefits and quality of the lens. As soon as we seen the quality my wife was sold on the crystal vision lens and we made the purchase. I would say this is by far the best investment that we've made because the clarity and quality of a picture says more than a thousand words. I would highly recommend this lens to any photo enthausist.
 Timothy S 4/4/2011
Excellent lens and quality. Clear and sharp pictures. Wide angle works perfectly and macro is amazing. I use the Crystal Vision HD lens on my camera all the time. It is good for day time photos for family groupings and even better for night shots at my daughter's dance performances. It allows more light in. Very satisfied.
 smasheezy 2/4/2012
Its cool but if you know your lens its the shwag!
 KAREN REMAX 5/19/2013
