Tele-lens for Canon G3
 
Hello everyone, my first post here! :D
Im about to buy a tele-conversion lens for my Canon G3, because I want be able to take pictures of subjects that is likely to run/fly away if you get too close. And I also would like to get the background blurred when I take it from a distance (10m from the subject or more), I wonder if that can be done when the focus setting on the camera becomes infinity after 5 meters? (but maybe the scale only applies to max wide-angle?)

Sofar ive found three lenses that seems good:
Raynox DCR-1540PRO 1.54x
Raynox DCR-1850PRO 1.85x
Canon TC-DC58N 1.75x

Though id like to have an even larger magnification, do you know any good lenses with something around 2.5x perhaps? Would that be possible with good quality? And what are your thoughts on these?

Thank you! And Merry Christmas! :D

Tiffen mega plus has power of 2x - canon TC-DC52 (52mm) has it beefed up to 2.4 but it is intentioned for A70, A80, but with step up ring (52mm to 58mm) it may fit and used on G3.

There are many to choose from :(

That's an ineresting idea. It would fit on a 52mm lensmate. Has anybody tried this combination?

Try Kenko KNT-20.

If you are using G3, TCDC52 is not for you. Although TCDC52 has 2.4x, the eyepiece glass is less than 25mm diameter and you will get vignetting all thru' the G3 zoom range.
