I have an offer from a dealer. If i buy the JVC they "give me for free" a Fujinon WCV-82S wide angular. I cannot find information about this.
Is it worthy? Has any quality to atach a "glass" in front of an HD camera?

No experience about the model youi mentioned but ....

I've have a few wide angle converters tele multipliers etc. Some have been excellent and some so so. My thinking: besides the quality of the converter, it depends on the quality of the main lens. if the main lens is marginal the amount of degradation with the converter will be more apparent. If both the main lens and the converter are well designed you can get good results.

Best to try before buying or have an arrangement for returning if not up to your satsifaction. Test with lens wide open and with a strong light source both in and then just out of frame to check for flare the converter may introduce.
