anyone have any experience of this lens with a Canon Powershot S3 IS?

http://www.raynox.co.jp/english/dcr/...r1850proeg.htm



I know lensmateonline.com do not recommend the larger DCR-2020 PRO but do recommend the DCR-1540...anyone know how the DCR-1850 compares?

cheers

Chris

contacted lensmate adn this was their response....



The Raynox 1850 is a fairly poor match for the S3...........you can see
samples on the Raynox site www.raynox.com .......be sure to click on
their thumbs to see a larger photo. The Raynox DCR 2020 would be fine
if you wanted to shoot birds as the center of the lens is in focus but
all four corners are blurry - we did not feel our customers would be
happy with the lens.

I went with Canon's TC-DC58B tele lens. I too searched and searched then got way too confused. So I decided to stay with what Canon recommended. Here's a shot from the zoo. I'm very happy with the results. Hope this helps.
