I found this in Ebay: SIOCORE 1.8x HD Tele-Konverter Tele-Vorsatz-Linse CANON PowerShot G1 X bzw. G1X
Does anyone know it?


yes, I am using the HD teleconverter and am quite happy with it. Siocore also offers a WA adapter and claims that there would be no vignetting (I have no experience with that one). I further have no experience with their standard products (non-HD)



Wide Angle:


Since there were some people interested in this product I had asked them if they would deliver outside of Germany, but unfortunately they do not. However, I believe they are just a distributor and with some searching one might find other international distributors.

The tele-converter is not attached to the lens, but to the camera body, as done with the other G-Series Canon lenses. I had posted in the past several threads with my comments and pictures - just run a search for "G1X tele-converter". This one was my first: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/42608281

Hope that helps a little.


In the wide angle converter, that's exactly what I was looking for, a damn shame you can't get it outside Germany
