Budget Wide-Angle Lens For Canon HF200

I bought a lens from ebay for my Canon HF200 camera. The cost was 12,5$ + shipping, which was about 6$ from HONG KONG. It arrived 2 weeks ago to my post office but i didn't get the notification but the shipping itself was average fast. So altogether the lens cost about 14 euros - the price & quality is pretty decent compared to 200 euro canon's lens. This lens is .45x and canon is .70x.

I can't complain for the design and fitting of the combo either:

Of course the quality for the lens is not the most pro but "if you don't got job" (like katt williams says) and you want to record in cypher.. then any additional centimeter counts!!

If you are interested here's the direct link for the lens (it says it also fits JVC, SONY):
