Re: VCL-HGD1758 or VCL-HG1758

Thanks all friends.

I'm going to order the "D" version tonight. After getting stuck with a horrible Kenko WA "PRO" for my Sony without the ability to return it, I figured out that I'd rather ask first. Thanks!

I think that just about every web retailer out there tries to
market video camera lenses for digital still cameras, and, in
return, trying to sell more. Always check manufacturers' sites to
see if it is a video lens or camera lens. From what I understand,
camera lenses are usually of higher quality and calibrated for
digital still cameras. There's a lot of people out there trying to
push video lenses as camera lenses, especially on ebay. I'm sure
the HG version will work with the 717, but it was designed and made
for video cameras, so go with the HGD version and save yourself
some headaches. I purchased one a couple of months ago for my S85
and it works great. Good luck!

What is the difference between those models? I need a TC for my
717, and don't know the difference.
