Hi Yossi, first sorry for my english, i´m european Spanish

VCL-HG1758 converter for the Sony DCR-VX2000 Camcorder
• Get astounding detail in a telephoto view. This high-grade lens
delivers edge detail thereby ensuring optimum image quality.

• 2.0X telephoto converter for Sony 58 mm diameter lenses

No, it is 1.7x.

• Helps make distant subjects appear closer

• Lens Design: 3 groups, 5 elements

• High grade lens in aluminum housing for superb durability

• High grade lens offers twice the detail at the edge of an image

VCL-HGD1758 converter for your DSC-F707 or F717 camera
• Ultra-high quality 58mm thread lens

• 0.7x telephoto converter for the Sony DCR-VX2000 camcorder

No, it is also 1.7x, and is for digital still cameras. (It can presumably be used on the VX2000 too.)

• Helps make distant subjects appear closer

PS. I have the VCL-HG178, and you can see a couple of sample pictures here:

I got my lens used on eBay for a reasonable price.
