    Wide angle for the DP1?

    I've got the DP1 adapter tube and a 52 step up ring and now I'm looking for a nice wide angle. I'm not sure if it can be found but I really would like to keep it under 100$. I'd like to go as wide as possible without being a fish eye. Any tips?

    The DP1 has a fabulous wide angle lens on it - if you want something different, you have the wrong camera.

    HI, go to Lensmate and check what they say about wide angle for the DP-1. I have ordered products from this company before and the quality is very excellent.

    Thanks, but I think I'll be the judge of what I want or don't want.

    Thanks! The comparison is pretty cool (http://www.lensmateonline.com/newsit...DP1center.html). The ricoh also seems like a good choice. I absolutely love the DP1's 28mm, but being able to use that amazing foveon sensor with a 21mm or 22mm should really open up the creative possibilities.

    It was a considerate head's up - aren't you the same guy who bought an IR filter for his DP1?....

    I have over 1500 photos with the DP1 and I really love it. I really don't think it's right to make such a strong statement as to say "the camera is not for you" just because I would like to use a wider lens with it. I love it's 28mm but occasionally I use a macro set that I have. I don't think this means I need to sell my DP1 and buy a camera that has macro. The same goes for the wide angle, IR, filter sets. The DP1 has the ha-11 adapter for a reason.
