Re: E18 Error using Lensmate, Sony 0758, and Canon S2

I read your post and I purchased the 58mm Lensmate and a Sony VCLDH
0758 wide angle lens for my Canon S2 camera.

When I use this on my Canon S2 and zoom in, I get an E18 error which
is an issue with the lense not being able to extend the full length.

Did you run into this when using this combination? Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Hi there.

This is a known issue in that there is just not quite enough space before the lens bumps the back of the 0758. However you can buy a spacer which will give it that little extra length and elimate the error. See this post at the Sx forum about the same problem: http://www.s3users.com/forum/showthread.php?p=60821&highlight=sony+0758#post60821

PS. the original post was about the 1758 TC not the 0758 WAC. The 1758 TC works beautifully with the Sx series.
