I purchased the telephoto lens for my Canon S2IS, and it doesn't seem to make a huge difference. Does anyone have any thoughts? I could return it. I have compared photos, and from what the dealer told me, I thought I would get more remarkable results with the telephoto lens, made for the S2IS, of course. It does have the nice 12x zoom, so maybe I don't need telephoto. Thanks

Hi McDaniel

What brand and multipilcation factor is the lens.I have an Oly T-con17 (1.7X) and it gives me 20.4X optical zoom - anotable difference from 12X.You may have been given a 1.5X - which difference is less noticable

If you have a look at my gallery (click on my name)on page 4 at the top there are comparison shots of 12X with and without converter.

Cheers Dom
