I'm just wondering what all I would have to do to get another lens on my powershot s1(particularly a fisheye). I know I have to get the adapter tube, but what size? 52mm?

and once I have that, am I able to stick any lens on it that is 58mm(I've read that that's what size it has to be for my s1)

Any and all clarification is appreciated, I really dont know much about them at all haha. Even if you just point me in the direction of another site, I'm sure that would be helpful as well.

one last thing, http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=30066&item=3839505040&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW
would something like that fit on my camera, even though the auction says its for a g1/g2?

Firstly, there are two lenses available - a telephoto and a wide-angle. There's no such thing as a fish-eye lens available for digital cameras as far as I know.

I believe that there are two further standards of lens - those that will fit the Canon Pro1 and those that'll fit the Canon S1 IS. They are, of course, incompatible.

If you look at This link (http://www.jessops.com/search/viewproduct.cfm?PRODUCT=CANPSS1&BRAND=CAN&CONTINUE=false&FEATS=&FIRSTPRICE=&KEYWORD=&LEVEL=&MODELNUMBER=&NEWQUERY=True&NODE=0&NODE_PATH=0&ORD=ASC&ORDERBY=&QUANTITY=10&RECENT=0&REFINE=&SEARCH_FOR=canon%20s1&SEARCHNODE=0&SEARCHURL=dointellisearch.cfm&SECONDPRICE=&SHOWCASEID=&STARTROW=1&SUBS=&WORD_SEARCH=Y&) then you'll see what fits the Canon S1 IS (and how much Jessops charge).
