I have been shooting a lot of wakesurfing lately and am in desperate need of a wide angle....can anyone suggest a good wide angle for a decent price??

Check out the Century Optics DS-55WA-37 .55X Wide Angle Adapter. <a href="http://www.centuryoptics.com/products/dv/55x_wa/55x_37mm.htm" target="_blank">http://www.centuryoptics.com/products/dv/55x_wa/55x_37mm.htm</a> Please note that this is <b>NOT a zoom-through lens!!</b> Which means that if you zoom more than half way you will loose focus. If you are comfortable with that B&amp;H Photo has it for $79 <BR><a href="http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?A=details&amp;kw=CEDS55WA37&amp;is=REG&amp;Q= &amp;O=productlist&amp;sku=229934" target="_blank">http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?A=details&amp;kw=CEDS55WA37&amp;is=REG&amp;Q= &amp;O=productlist&amp;sku=229934</a> <BR> <BR>Another "Century Optics" option is the DS-HR65-37 .65X HR Wide Angle Converter which is $210 and does all full zoom through <BR><a href="http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?A=details&amp;kw=CEDSHR6537&amp;is=REG&amp;Q= &amp;O=productlist&amp;sku=287710" target="_blank">http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?A=details&amp;kw=CEDSHR6537&amp;is=REG&amp;Q= &amp;O=productlist&amp;sku=287710</a> <BR> <BR>Or you can look at the some of the lens from Kenko or Canon. The TRV-38 has 30 mm filter threads (got that from the sony site, but you might want to double checků!) so when you're doing a search make sure to note the thread size of the wide angle lens before buying.
