The main shortcoming of this converter is that it increases the minimum focus distance (at camera's longest zoom) to a whopping 6 ft. At this distance, the field of view is about 7.6 inches wide. Without the converter, at longest zoom, you can get down to a view about 4.1 inches wide, at about 22 inches from the subject. So, regrettably this means that if you want to capture miscellaneous subjects in nature that may be approachable (butterflies, lizards, whatever), you can probably get a much better closeup without the converter. I suspect it will mostly sit in my bag just in case I see a large animal standing around (but not too far away), in which case it can really improve the shot (almost doubling the subject's size).
You will probably not use it unless the subject is really special and worth digging the converter out. But it is helpful that a large leatherette bag is included with this lens so you can leave the adapter attached to the lens and just pop the whole thing on and off.
In an effort to get closer to the subject, I have experimented with reducing the zoom while the converter is attached. This seems pretty useless. For example, at 1x the view was ca. 4 inches across, 2 inches from the subject. At around 2x, at closest focus, you get ca. 3.5 inches across at 2.5 inches away. At around 3-4x, the closest distance goes up to 6 ft.
Vignetting seems a minor issue because you will mostly use this converter when zoomed all the way out.Read more ›
Lens requires an adapter - a seperate piece to keep track of.
Firstly, if there are any negatives, they are very minor; the lens and adapter are black - would have been nice to have been silver to match with the camera. Erm, that's it!
The main quality of Canon is the lens, which they always do well. The clarity of this lens is very good, with very little fuzziness at the edge. It also connects simply the adapter and seems fairly solid when connected. The electronics features help in the overall control of adding the attachment. The tele lens does make a difference for just getting that bit closer to get what you want.
Vignetting is something to note: I was able to eliminate the effect before reaching half of the zoom range, and even at full wide it covers only about the side 6th of the field of view, so it is still fairly usable if you get stuck in that position. However, because this is used to get close you probably won't, and you do get a good zoom range to use with it besides.
This lens is relatively light: this one with the WC-DC58 wide converter combined still weigh LESS than the aforementioned WD-H58 wide converter! And it is compact enough for what it does.

Not much that could go wrong with this - but it is well built, and attaches easily. I use this on a PowerShot A620 which only has a 4x optical zoom. Read morePublished on October 7, 2010 by CompShark

I am not a camera buff, but I wanted some extra zoom capability. It doesn't increase the zoom as much as I had hoped, but it does the job for me.Published on May 5, 2008 by S. Goodhead
I made the mistake of selecting the bundle without reading the requirements closely. The lens is for a variety of Canon cameras but the adapter only works with the A6XX series. Read morePublished on December 28, 2006 by Ovid
