Between the two(Lens).... Can't Post

I have recently purchased a Sony PC-109 and looking at getting a wide-angle lens. I have kind of narrowed it down on these two, I searched the forums, I am not looking to spend alot of money, just one that will get the job done.

First:
Sony 0.6x Wide-Angle Lens

Second:
Opteka 0.5x Wide Angle Lens
Opteka 2x Telephoto Lens
Opteka 0.43x Full Fisheye Lens
Also, a bunch of other goodies.

The Opteka costs about $40 than the Sony, but it does come with alot. What do yall think of Opteka or recommend for something in that price range? Thanks.

Dale

What are you planning on using the camera for? You're about 198 jumps away from putting it on your head unless your profile is out of date.

Heh yea, not skydiving. Just all around, for anything from winte/summer trips, my friends motorcycle during racing, everything really.

Just your better all around wide-angle lens.

I have the Sony .6x on my TRV22, and I've been really happy with it for skydiving. I've also started using it when videoing my son, as I'm usually pretty close.

You might be interested in this wide angle lens comparison.
