    Hey I'm wanting to buy a fisheye lens for my canon Powershot A650. I looked up lens for it on amazon and found one called Opteka HD² 0.20X Professional Super AF Fisheye lens. I was wondering if that one would fit my camera. Also if you know of a lens that would fit a Canon powershot A650 please help me out.

    THANKS!:mrgreen:

    This is the lens I've been looking at. I don't wanna buy it and realize it won't fit.

    I have no experience with non-dslr lenses, but it says it's made specifically for the a650, so I'm going to go out on a limb and say it'll fit. :)

    And a big thick sturdy limb at that! :thumbup: :lmao:

    Of course being it's a add-on type lens, it's not really a fisheye. All it will do is add a bunch of barrell distortion.

    those cheapo Super Professional XYZ to the power of 2 doodah fisheyes are depressing rubbish.
