Re: TG-1: Anyone plan on external add on lenses?

I'm going to get the wide angle lens but it needs the adaptor ring which is currently on back order everywhere. The whole camera with lens will fit in the belt pack I wear when cycling. I own a K7 which is a great camera but is a lot to carry at times. Since getting the TG-1 it's the camera that always goes everywhere. There will be people here that would say instead of spending $600+ on this camera why not just get a say Canon G1X. Well drop a G1X or get it wet and you're out $800. Yes there is a loss of IQ but it is not so significant as to make the photo totally useless. Hell people are out there using smart phones for photography. Great photos don't require the most expensive equipment only a great photographer. The TG-1 is quite a capable camera on that score.
