    Are there any options to get a wider FOV on the Minolta A1?

    Thanks!

    Phoenix 0.6X wide converter:

    Get a 49-58 step up to bring it as close to the Minolta lens as possible.
    There is some vignetting at 28mm, mild barrel distortion and our old friend
    chromatic abberation (both correctable with Panotools). The conversion
    factor is really only 0.75X.

    Duh? and this answered the question did it. He could take a look at Kenko or
    Tiffen for that matter.

  5. By getting a D100 with the 12-24 f/4.0 zoom or the 10.5mm fisheye.
    Image quality, especially at higer ISOs. Any of the dSLRs at ISO 400 have
    the same noise levels as consumer cameras at ISO 100, and the same noise
    levels at ISO 1600 as the consumer cameras have at ISO 400. A big
    difference.
    You've missed the most important point: image quality.
