    I am planning on buying a new "SD" Broadcast wide angle and I will post some more results then. For now here is the Fujinon "HD" 17x7.6 lens that came with my hpx500 (for comparison to the wide shot before) its also compressed into a jpeg and yes, the image was sharper before I compressed it:

    Thats sharp as it gets. (I dont have a comparison between an SD vs HD lens on this shot)

    (look at the small details in this close-up vs the details in the wide shot before, you can see that the SD lens is just a bit sharper)

    Another great picture, Hunter. But honestly, I'm looking for a short term solution until I can afford expensive glass. If that is the difference between the 2, I can definitely live with the SD image for the time being. If someone had told me the first picture was with a SD lens, I probably would have been inclined to believe them.

    Hey Hunter, I see you just did a screen shot on that - could you do a few more and post those up? That would be great, just for reference on the HD lens. Thanks!

    Ohh, please do, Matt. That would be wonderful. I would like to see as many pictures as possible and even some very short clips would be great. That looks like a good quality HD image to me.

    BTW, thaks to everyone for taking time out of your day to post these pictures and your comments. They are VERY helpful to me in making a decision to go with the HPX500 (well 555, but that's another story for another thread). Keep 'em comin'!

    SD = Standard Definition
    HD= High Definition

    We're talking about older ENG lenses that come from Standard Definition ENG camera bodies - "supposedly" they produce terrible images on HD ENG bodies, but we're quickly finding out they can look great. The camera companies say that you NEED a HD lens, but I think they're wrong. Your lenses will be fine with HD and an adapter...Total marketing ploy. But I will admit that they have done a good job with it! More money in their pockets.
