Wide angle conversion lenses. Can anyone convince me?
Jul 6, 2011

It looks like a 7mm lens will not be in my future any time soon! But there's a 14mm lens in my bag, so can anyone convince me that there is a wideangle conversion lens/filter that is good enough to enjoy some wide angle fun, which, although would obviously not challenge a true ultra wide angle lens, would give IQ good enough for, say... A high def 24inch computer wallpaper, and doesnt desolve into complete mush around the edges?

Does anyone have some examples please, and if you could be specific about what the model of the product is that would be really helpful. I just don't know what the options are for a 52mm wide angle filter.


It wasn't until I stopped trying to be a PRO that my photography really improved.
