Default Cannon A70 and Add-On lens from E-bay...

Afternoon All,

I recently acquired a Canon A70, and I love it to death. I am interested in the Add-On lenses and I found two for sale on E-bay. They have the tele and the wide, as well as the adapter. Could you guys/gals give me your opinion on this deal?

Thanks,

-Ames

I too am interested in this, am looking at the A80. Maybe this thread could post at the Canon site too.

Why don't you wait till you get them and try them, they may be "good enough" for you.

I bought a used Canon WA-Conv that has some barrel distiortion, but I can correct that with software...it's good enough for now considering the price I got it for, until I can afford a good one.

Hi Mike,

I saw comparison pics of the lenses on variors cameras and they all looked like garbage... heavy blurring in the center of the image... I also talked to a friend (just an hour ago) who does photography and he said to avoid them at all costs and he has the same camera I do.

From,
Joe
