    Ive noticed taking a few steps back then zooming in on a subject makes it look more like how your eyes see it. Is there a lens that can do this without having to step back?

    Sounds impossible to me consideing i have 2 eyes and camera only has one :dunno:

    The 50mm lens on a 35mm camera is suppose to be the closest lens that will replicate a scene as your eye sees it.

    Oh right yeah, im using a compact digital camera, Canon A70.

    It has a lens conversion adapter for extra lenses, the lens adapter has a 52mm thread, i dont know much about lenses, so is that compatible.

    How much will a lens cost?

    Marcos,
    I don't know much about your camera but it sounds like you have a filter adapter, not a lens adapter. Filter sizes typically come in 52mm diameters. It also sounds like you have a wide angle zoom lens. ie, a lens that "sees" a wider than normal view and has a small zoom capability.
