GoPro Alternative Lenses? Can't Post

I've been filming with my Gopro for sometime now and the novelty of the fisheye is wearing off. I was wondering has anyone found a different lens you can put on it? Something with a little zoom would be nice:)

spendy, but you can have the lens removed, and replaced with a higher grade, more narrow view lens.
Or, buy a GP3, and use narrow mode. Not terribly different.
And still less costly than changing out the lens.
Or you could go Novo...

Check with Dennis at Ragecams.com He's retrofitted 3 of our GoPros (an HD Hero2 and two HD Hero) with lenses. I think they are 3.6, 4.0 and 4.3 mm. I like the non-fisheye appearance - everything looks "normal". Here's a POV from the Eloy 222-ways in April shot with either the 3.6 or 4.0:

Ragecam is a terrific alternative but as mentioned above, it's twice the price of the camera. 700.00 for a 5.4 mod'd camera.
the 50mm is 1200.00
