Do wide angle lens attachments on pancakes deliver decent IQ?
Apr 25, 2012

Having just picked up the 30mm pancake for its technical excellence I am contemplating occasional use of an add on wide angle converter. I have seen a few on eBay and they are pretty inexpensive.(under $20 US)

Moving onto my question, I am wondering to what degree, more or less, does the typical wide angle...or telephoto one for that matter, converter, typically degrade the imgage output? I see some potential artistic uses. I understand that light is reduced and some sharpness will be lost.
