It is hard to beat for the money, as far as magnification, quality, and price. There are cheaper lenses but quality will suffer. There are beter lenses like the tcon 17 but the canon tc-dc52 is close in quality, possibly cheaper, defanatlly easier to find and 2.4x compared to the tcon 17's 1.7x.

This takls about it some. There is a link to some sample pics (on an a40, not an a70).
I actually bought a more expensive lens and it has lesser image quality than the canon.

Thanks Richard. I actually had read that post but somehow blew right over the link to the pictures. They look pretty good to me and, Canon's optics have always been decent...
