    I´m thinking about getting a Raynox DCR-6600PRO 0.66x wide angle adapter so that I can use it on my micro 4/3 and NEX lenses. Did anyone ever try this lens out?

    My main concerns are:

    1- optical quality
    2 - Weight stress on the micro 4/3 and NEX lenses (this little fella weights 178g)

    I know it´s hard, but now that I´m using 2 systems I try minizining the costs by using accessories that I can use on both.

    I haven't used this particular lens, but I have a similar Fuji from an older camera. Optically it is not bad, the extra glass causes some light loss, perhaps a stop, but doesn't really degrade image quality.
    Weight is another thing, however. It is heavy and could stress a lens - depending upon which lens you attach it to. I can't say for certain it would damage a lens, but I would be a bit wary.
