I just got the high grade wide angle lens for cd300 and want to hear from those who have this lens and camera. Should I just set to macro mode or use the dedicated "conversion" lens or whatever setting in setup. I notice you can't go lower than f4 when using the setup mode. Also, is camera flash totally useless now with the big lens?

That depends on what you're taking a picture of. The best setting for a landscape picture won't necessarily be the best setting for a group portrait. You might want to use different settings for a daytime landscape than for a sunset. That's why the camera offers different settings. The camera is a tool. You're the photographer.
The cap is a plastic disk, usually black or silver, that snaps on at the end of the lens to keep the lens clean. Some lenses have two caps, one for each end when not attached to the camera.
Some cameras don't use a "loose" cap; those cameras generally retract the lens into the camera body and "close" a door in front of the lens.
Many, if not most, camera users do not use a cap (my guess).
The wide angle lens is generally an "optional" lens that can be used for group or scenery pictures when you want to shoot a "wide" picture. A "normal" lens is generally around 50mm (plus / minus 5mm). A wide lens is anywhere from 17mm to 24mm (or so).
They make some cheesy mount lenses that clip on the front of your camera. But if you ask me they are not worth the money. I needed to take wide angle shots at work and ended up having to upgrade to a SLR grade camera. Go to any electronics store or camera store and they will demonstrate what I am talknig about.
Yes if we change or try to upgrade the parts of our unit it should be supposed to change.
But we must remember that we should also look only with a compatible parts in our unit for a best result enjoy.
There are lenses available to add with an adapter ring. I have the wide angle lens (which I LOVE) and a 2x telephoto lens. The wide angle lens allows me to macro from several feet away. It is an amazing lens. The telephoto lens is something you really need to use with a tripod. But yes, there are lenses you can add to your camera.
Hey matty reps, I found one wide angle lens attachment that should work for your camera and I have attached a link to it so you can see what you think. I have little experience with these types of lens attachments, and have heard they're not nearly as good as having a wide angle/fisheye lens that mounts directly to the camera. If you don't mind losing autofocus you can usually find very cheap manual focus lens that are very high quality lenses for sale at some local camera shops. I hope this helps! http://www.sakar.com/p-105.aspx?categoryid=142 Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
Have you ever heard the expression "Good, Fast, Cheap ...pick any two" ?
Well, it's that situation. The kit lens is cheap, and it has a good zoom range (including wide-angle) but it's not very high quality. The best lens for you is probably the 17-55 EF-S -but it is $1000. It is a great lens, and it's efficient and light sensitive, along with image stabilization.
Without knowing your budget, I would also recommend the 28-135 EF IS, but it doesn't cover the wide angle range. That one is $400.
There's also the 17-85mm, which also has Image Stabization. That one is about $500.
