Tele-converter for G12
I agree and disagree. Yes, try what the camera has built in first. However, an optical lens will be best every time.
You can never go wrong with the manufactures lens.
I would try the digital zoom first before whipping out the credit card; it may be 'good enough'. Add on lenses aren't always top notch either.
