The HDP-5072EX is a 0.5x semi-fish eye conversion lens particularly designed for use with the High Definition large aperture camera lens and it has a resolution power of 630 lines/mm at center (MTF30%). With the HDP-5072EX lens mounted on a High Definition camera's lens, it broadens 100% more the field of view than the original widest angle of view.
In shooting a subject of short distance with HDP-5072EX lens on, it creates an interesting image of semi-fisheye effect, taking an advantage of the -31% distortion nature, but it takes a panoramic picture of 0.5x wide angle coverage without bothering the distortion image, when taken a distant subject. The HDP-5072EX lens is compatible with 52mm, 55mm, 58mm, 62mm, 67mm, 77mm and 82mm filter sizes. The lens goes direct in the camera's filter size of 72mm.
