Here are a few shots taken with the Sony VCL-DH1758 Tele Lens with a Canon S2IS. I believe this lens will work well with the S2IS or S3IS. What do you think?

Much of the detail is lost at this low resolution.

Excellent shots!

I knew the 1758 was great for the Sony H series being specially matched to its optics, but it does very well on the Canon.


What ISO did you use ?

My exif reader (opanda) can't seem to show it, though I have heard Canon are weird and hide it somewhere different from every other manufacturer in the world !

jbarrick, those shots are absolutely amazing! I can't believe the sharpness of the images and none of them showed the CA that I expected to get from this lens.

I'm currently thinking about getting either this or the Olympus TCON-17 but was inclined towards the Olympus because of the reviews and sample images. The 55mm thread was a bit of a setback for me but I thought I can live with the adapter. Now that I've seen this, I'm going to change my mind again. :G

Thanks a lot and good job!

yeah its "hidden" in the EXIF Makernotes rather than the standard place it should be, I am having this problem at the mo on my photo gallery and trying to work out how to get round it

Canon software zoombrowser obviously shows it ok, but canon don't publish the spec of their makernotes so its a matter of trying to reverse engineer.....

yeah the best price for the Sony tc or the standard canon one I've seen in the UKhas been £99 and of course on top of that you need a lens adapter. the plastic canon lens adapter is about £25

I was looking at getting the raynox 1540 from http://www.lensmateonline.com

I worked out that the tc, lensmate metal lens adapter, lens cap, micro fibre cloth, rubber lens hood, and hoya polarizer filter I could get dlievred from them for about £112!

I still haven;t seen side by side comparions of the raynox and sony tc though so if anyone spots some please let me know!
