Default Macro lens???

I just took a look at the photo of the day, taken with a G5 plus macro lens. I never knew you could buy a macro lens as an extra. Does anyone know if this lens fits the G3???

on the Powershot G series you need an adapter/hood that connects to the camera and then any standard closeup lens/diopter can be added. I think (but verify) that the filter diameter is 58mm.

It isn't a special G series macro you'd be getting rather the two element 250D close up lens that they've had for a while. Can't speak to the quality of the 250D but I'm very happy with with the larger diameter 500D closeup lens. BTW the only difference is that the 250D is 52 and 58mm diameter, and the 500D is 72 & 77mm diameter.

You can also get cheaper single element lenses or for even more magnification reverse a standard 50mm camera lens.

Ask for more info in the Macro or Add-on lens forums.
