Default Canon G5 telephoto lens options

Howdy all....I've had my G5 for about a month now...and i'd like to add a telephoto adapter to it, so I'm looking for some opinions on a couple of lenses.....the Canon TCDC58N 1.75x, the Raynox DCR-1850Pro 1.85x, and the Raynox DCR-1800 1.8x. They all seem pretty comparable in price...the raynox lenses would fit on my lensmate 52mm adapter, and the raynox 1.8x has a front filter thread.
What I'm looking for is input on which is better optically for the G5.....which once all is said and done...is what is important to start with. Thanx!

It's funny, but there seems to be a lack of examples of zoomed pictures used with these teleconverters. They're out there, but often not clearly marked, like "Pictures 1-3 were taken with the Canon 1.75 teleconverter." I just received my Canon and Lensmate setup so I'll be posting some pictures just as soon as I can take some good ones.

I haven't yet used my Canon TC-DC58N out in the real world, so here are some pictures of the teleconverter itself.

I took my new Canon Tele attachment to a football game this past weekend and took some very nice shots. I was quite far away, but was quite please with the results attached to my G5. I was also able to crop out fairly small areas of some of the images and get even closer shots printed to 8X10 that were very acceptable.

Here's a URL. The stadium views were taken at the wide end of my G5. All the other shots were either with the tele attachment, full screen, or with a portion cropped out of the original image.

Woh, surely you must see how different these two products are, and have an idea which will most suit your needs.
