Default WC DC58 wide angle for G2

I want to put a WC-DC58 wide angle lens on my Christmas list. Has anyone used one on the G2 and if so, did it produce excellent, good, fair or dreadful images.

Also, I'm not sure that the mentioned lens is the only wide angle available for the G2.

Yes, it works great. The drawback is that the onboard flash is not usable since it will not illuminate the entire fram due to the WA housing being in the way. Check my web site for manay pics using this lens

Ray, I really appreciate your input. Took a look at your site, and I'm assuming that the fishing image was taken with the wide angle. It's one of those 'wish I was there' shots.

Just added a polarizer filter to my Christmas list, too.

Default Canon Battery

I just purchased a (replica) Canon BP511 on ebay from a vendor in Ontario, Canada for $28 Canadian- On the first charge using the flash and screen for each shot I took over 360 shoots. I`m now working on the 3rd charge and it appears the performance of this unit will exceed that of the OEM unit.
