WA adapters for G2

Recommended Posts

<p>I just received a Tiffen .75X wide converter from B&H. I use it with a <a href="http://www.lensmateonline.com/">Lensmate</a>

adapter on a G3. Initial impression it has acceptable barrel distortion;

significantly less than the Raynox equivalent. The Tiffen takes a 67 mm filter.

The Raynox filter threads were recessed inside a sort of built in hood, making

use of a polarizer impossible.</p>

<p>For more information try the following:</p>

I had tried Raynox and it was terrible, highly distorted, a lot of CA. Finally I settle down on a Canon WC-DC58N which is much more superior. The only complaint is that it is big and relatively heavy, and its len cap is very loose and the front element like finger print! Nevertheless, the lens works well on G2. Lensmate seems having favourable feedbacks from many reviews, but I haven't tried it.
