Anyone used this on a Canon HF/HG series camcorder?
Intending to get a WA lens for my HG20. Saw this on ebay - price looks quite good for something made by Canon, and this guy is in my city, so no shipping cost. However, its NIB, so I can't test it out. The link is here:
Has anyone used this specific lens before on a Canon HF/HG series camcorder? I know wide angle lenses are one of the hottest topics here and I have searched this and other forums, but I haven't found anything specific relating to this. I know the WD-H37 II is recommended, but I haven't heard anything on the original WD-H37.
Your link doesn't work. I suspect this is what you're looking at:

*questions whether to bite the bullet*
I have been using the WD-H43 with great results with my HG10 and with the step up ring it works great on my HG21 as well, I basically leave it on whatever camcorder I am using all the time.....
