Its even more troubling that they would design such a horrid solution to that problem, that of the LA-DC58K.

The worst part is that when they do eventually cross-thread, your heart stops for a second as you check the camera body to make sure it did not cross-thread.

The limitations imposed by this adapter are the worst part-full zoom range is not available, and severe vignetting occurs at wide angle.

Made of cheap plastic, this is actually a TWO-PIECE affair with a 57mm (odd-size) thread in the middle.All the plastic adapters I have owned stripped, cross-threaded or got loose threaded in no time, Canon has doubled your chances by making it two pieces that screw together.The worst part is that when they do eventually cross-thread, your heart stops for a second as you check the camera body to make sure it did not cross-thread.You can buy a metal alternative at [...].

The Canon LA-DC58K Adapter for the G10 is a waste of money. The thing rattles due to improper fit when mounted, it's a two-piece(who knows why) plactic adapter that when put to it's designed use, attaching a 58mm filter, vinettes severly at standard zoom range. Canon is,in my opinion, falling behind other manufactures in quality, and now appearently, in design engineeering as well. Too bad.

Unsuitable for filters, because of vignetting at wide angles and insufficient length for full telephoto extension of the lens. Should work fine with the Canon 1.4x tele adapter. For filters, consider the Lensmate alternative.

For some reason Canon has forgotten that the G10 is a flagship product, and released this "accessory." While I can understand the need for two pieces to some degree, the workmanship, materials, and limitations it imposes upon the camera are all unacceptable. The plastic itself is flimsy and too flexible, and I suspect will become brittle in cold temperatures. The limitations imposed by this adapter are the worst part-full zoom range is not available, and severe vignetting occurs at wide angle. Third party products are available for a higher price that are made of metal, and offer a larger filter diameter to avoid vignetting and are longer to allow full zoom range. Let's hope this product is just an exception, rather than the rule when it comes to Canon's new accessories.

I purchased this accessory for the sole purpose of being able to use my extensive filter system with this camera. I normally shoot with a DSLR and the screw thread size on all my filters, as well as close-up lenses, is 77mm.

After attaching a 58mm to 77mm step up ring, all of my regularly used filters easily attached. There is a catch, however. The mere adding of the conversion adapter will create vignetting at the widest focal length settings on the zoom range. So you're going to loose the 28mm focal length. It's going to be more like a 35mm after zooming in far enough to eliminate the vignetting.

I plan to overcome this limitation by shooting multi-image panorama shots with the camera in a vertical position. I can then control how wide I want the image and the longer focal length (35mm or higher) actually reduces the distortion that is occasioned by wider angle focal lengths, making the panorama look more realistic.

I was also successful in attaching my Canon 500D close-up lens. Vignetting is not a problem here as you are using the longer end of the zoom range for close-ups. Generally speaking, at the maximum optical zoom, this close-up lens allowed me to focus about 5 inches closer to the subject and it more than doubled its size on the LDC screen as compared the closest focusing point without a close-up lens.

Despite the limitations, this accessory still permits one to extend the potential of this camera by permitting the use of filters and close up lenses.

I recently got this with my G10 and confirm everything negative that everyone here says about it ,.. A MUCH better alternative are the products available thru [...]
they explain what works and what does not and what you need to achieve a given result,.. I have purchased replacement parts thru them and Im very pleased,.. the Canon part is simply sub-par dont waist your money.
As far as Amazon goes they were GREAT as always speedy ontime delivery at a great price.

This has many uses, but because of the way the Canon lens moves, it's not perfect. The lens moves out for wide angle, then in for midrange, then out further for telephoto. This causes a complicated set of conflicting design tradeoffs for this seemingly simple adapter tube. To mount a Canon teleconverter, it has to be long enough for the lens zoomed long. But unfortunately that long tube would block the lens at widest angle, causing vignetting. So, Canon made the end section removable, so you use the short part for wide, and add the end section for telephoto.

This is at best inconvenient, but it sort of works. Another way to solve this problem is to flare the end tube to 72mm. Then it won't vignette at wide, and it will accept 72mm accessories. The problem with that is the flared extension blocks both the viewfinder and the flash. Nonetheless, a third party makes a version of this adapter with the 72mm flared end section. Lensmate is the third party, and wouldn't you know, people copied them with a cheaper version made in China. Google it, you will find the Lensmate product and the copies too.

After a lot of complaints, Canon redesigned this for the G12 (same lens). They made it telescope, very cool. It does slightly block the viewfinder and the flash because they had to make the tube wider to allow the telescoping, so it's not perfect, but it works OK except for blocking the corner of the flash. It's got a spring pulling the filter mount to the camera body, then the lens pushes out to change zoom and they stay coupled (since there are no threads on the front of the actual lens, this is a cute way of doing it). It's here on Amazon as the Canon FA-DC58B. FA=Filter Adapter? Hmmm, I guess they don't want you to use heavy lenses on it.
