    Do you have this lens?

    I'm in need of a telephoto lens and came across this lens. Just wondering how it compares to the canon.

    Add on lenses are usually a disappointment for compact cameras.

    Total crap!

    Only buy one of the lenses you see here:

    Besides the Canon, Raynox and TCON are good. I have the Raynox DCR-1540Pro and I am very happy with it.

    Thanks so much for the replies! My DH was two clicks away from ordering this. I'm looking at the Canon version. Amazon has a discounted rate if I purchase the adapter w/ the hood. How important is a hood?

    You don't need the hood.
