hi!

any one can suggest teleconvertor?

TCON 1.7x / canon TC-DC58(1.5x) / or any other better.

I prefer same brand optics but not able to get many reviews on TC-DC58.

pl. suggest any one here using canon tele-convertor on S2?

I have canon SLR (rebel G) (not Digi) with canon 75-300 lense also. Is athere any tele conv. which I can use on both.

A comparison of the Sony VCL-DH1758 and the Olympus TCON-17:

Here are a few shots I took with DH1758 attached to the S2. These photos were taken handheld and no PP except for cropping. No sharpening, color adjustments, etc. I personally find the DH1758 an excellent lens. I bought primarily for my H1 but it works perfectly with the S2.

thanx Tullio for that quick response with pics.

But I still wonder does DH1758 of anyother filter I can use both with my S2 IS & REBEL G?

So far, from everything I've seen, the DH1758 works well with just about any brand. I've seen pic examples of this lenswith the Panasonic FZ5/FZ20, the Sony H1/R1 andCanon S2. I'm not familiar with the Rebel G but my guess is that, if it takes 58mm threaded lens, this tele will work beautifully.
