If you want to use Canon's telephoto or wide-angle converter lenses with your G3 or G5 camera, you will have to purchase this adapter, which converts the threads on the lenses to fit the camera.

The drawbacks: it's the wrong color for the G5; it blocks the manual viewfinder (who uses that on these cameras, anyway?); and it can interfere with the in-camera flash (and thus a separate flash mounted on the camera's boot is a good idea). It also doesn't come with any carry case, unlike the actual lenses, but it should fit in your camera bag without a problem--and can be "stored" on the lenses themselves if you like.

Make sure that you're using this adapter ONLY on the G3 or G5; unfortunately, it doesn't work with the G1, G2, or G6. You'll need a different adapter for those cameras.

If you're going to use the adapter with more than one of the lenses, I suggest purchasing more than one. That way, you can leave the LADC58B screwed onto the lenses and make switching lenses much quicker and easier. The lens' cap will snap onto the adapter's open end without difficulty, and at least in the case of the tele converter, you can put the "assembled" combination of lens and adapter back into the lens' storage bag as a single unit.

I am the proud owner of a Canon Powershot G5, and I bought this Adapter to be able to use my 58mm Circular Polarizing filter. It works well for that purpose.
Now for some facts about the adapter:
* It is made to enable you to use 58mm filters, Macro-, Tele- or Wide-angle converter on your G3 or G5 (and it is also required for these).
* It will not work with your G1 or G2.
* People seem to be getting this wrong all the time: The LA-DC58 is only for the G1, G2, and this adapter (LA-DC58B) is only for the G3 and G5.
Pros:
* Quite durable - Hard plastic that has so far taken quite a pounding, and basically not a single chip or scratch.
* Works fine with any 58mm filter
* It is lightweight, so it will not weight your camera down. Of course, anything you put on the adapter is likely to be quite heavy.
Cons:
* The color - It is silver, something that matches the G3 in color, but since the G5 is black - it really doesn't look that nice on the G5.
* The shape - It is in the way of the flash on wide-angle view on the G3/G5. You can still use the flash unobstructed when you zoom a bit - probably to around 2x zoom.
Conclusion: It does what it is supposed to do, but Canon really should have taken the time to give you the choice between a G3 colored and a G5 colored. There is also the issue of the converter partly blocking the flash. It is still a necessary piece of equipment if you want to use a Tele or Wide-angle converter, or a 58mm filter on your Canon Powershot G3 or G5. It's a good piece of equipment, but due to its obvious drawbacks, I can only give it 3 stars!!!

I have used this adapter on my Canon G3 and am satisfied with it. It allows me to attach any 58mm filter, lens or lens cap. My particular habit is to attach the Canon 250D close-up lens, then a high quality UV filter, and then on top of that a lens cap (when not in use). The G3's main lens stays protected throughout. I recommend this adapter!

Although the lens adapter accommodates the 58mm lens series, it partially blocks the viewfinder view and the flash causing an unacceptable photo. Clearly an Canon caused problem.
