DSC-S85 is using the f/2.0 lens identical optical spec as Canon G2. Assuming you already got the 52mm adapter ring, I think you can get a Kenko KNT-20 (which is LD-20T in japan) to try. The image is crisp (even better than TCDC58N). But note, due to the f/2.0 lens' diameter and 29mm eyepiece glass on KNT-20, the vignetting will only removed after 2.5x zoom (So you could still get a nice tele end photo).

Some photos for your reference:
