Just FYI, I tried a KUT-300 HI in a local camera shop with my Canon A70. The results were terrible, chromatic fringing on all high-contrast areas. I took a shot of several shelves full of camera bags, with little white tags hanging off - the shot came out with the tags appearing to have a red stripe on one side and a blue stripe on the other.

Perhaps, mating this lens to a different camera might give you a different result, but I would NOT buy this lens without trying it on your camera first, and examining the result very closely.

I had the same result with a Kenko 2x lens in another store.

I too was wondering about lenses for the V1. After searching eBay a bit I found these lenses:

The Kenko 3x noted above, and a .5x Kenko
Digital Optics .45x, .5x, 2x, 2.5x, and 3x lenses
Opteka 2x and 3x
Raynox .72x, 1.85x, DCR-250 Super Macro
Sony 1.7x and .7x

I'm new to all this and was wondering if anyone knows anything about these Brands - from what I've read here Kenko isn't very good, and the prices on eBay lead me to believe Digital Optics are also very cheap lenses. Any help would be appreciated :)

Please buy original 1,7 and 0,7. You get proper adapter rings and high quality lens.

Best rezults.
You have good optics and you do not need cheapo lens in front.
