2X lens for non-vignetted pics?
Is there a 2X telephoto lens that won't produce vignetted pictures (blurred edges) at max telephoto on the 7? I have a Digital Optics 2X Pro Telephoto lens but I get blurry edges on all my pics, which gets even worse when I reduce the zoom. I was wondering if there are any 2X add-on telephoto lens that won't do this, at least at max zoom.

Blurry isn't the same as vignetting which is darkening of the corners. Not sure about a different adapter but try shooting at the smallest aperture if conditions allow and see if there is an improvement. F9.5 isn't very small but it might help.

They all vignette if you move away from the 200mm position. I don't have one and rather buy a x0.8 for wide angle, but the x1.7 Olympus B300 is highly sought after.
