Default telephoto lens for powershot G2

We have just gotten a Canon Powershot G2 camera. Please tell me about the adapter needed for a telephoto lens and the telephoto lens itself.

I'm probably going to buy a tele converter and a close-up lens (and adapters) today. I too would like to hear from others who have used these lenses...

Well, I tried real hard today to buy a teleconverter and adapter. No where in the North Bay Area to be found.

Not much interest here either in discussing the G2 lense options... ummm

Maybe users of this camera have not gotten into nature photography requiring telephoto. I shot a good picture of a baby tree frog just emerging from our fountain, sitting on a leaf... but not as close a shot as I wanted. Without a telephoto, how do you shoot those close-ups without frightening the subject away?

Found one teleconverter in Santa Rosa and the adapter in San Rafael. They are one hold for me and will be picking them up today. I'll post my impressions after I've had a chance to use it.

hi telephoto lens for canon g2 you can choose any one that you can from canon,raynox,tiffen,kenko ,olympus
but when it stick on your camera you can not play too much with zoom,you ll got vignetting that mean dark in the four corner, your g2 has 3 x optic lens, if you are ready for more power lens and dark in corner (vingetting)when your zoom lesss tha 3 x ,turn on and turn off each time you want wideangle to tele and a heavy part in your bag , think a bout it
