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.
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.Read more ›

This thing is alright. I got it without its original box or instructions, which one would likely never need, and I use it with my filters. Read morePublished on January 14, 2011 by JSchroif
