The Century Precision Optics .75x wide angle converter. It is excellent and works as a zoom-through.

I agree with Mitch. I have all three of the century adapters (.3, .6, .75). The wider ones were used as part of a feature shoot that required that distorted look. But for general use, if the 25% increase in field of view is sufficient, the .75 is far more flexible with far fewer distortions.

Allow me to third. I used the Century adapter this weekend and thought it performed quite well.
