I'm looking for tele and wide angle converters for my Canon G1X. Knowing that converters degrade IQ, I am looking for high quality converters. Are there any available?

I would forget wide angle converters, you'll just get bad vignetting whilst gaining little. I tried one of the best there is, the Olympus WCON-07 (the dinner plate) and that's all I got. The lens retracts too far when zooming out. If anyone has had better success with something else I'd be happy to be corrected. I'm not sure about tele converters I haven't found anyone using one yet.
