Hi, looking for a wide angle converter.
I know canon recommend the the WD-58H, the WC-DC58 has also 58mm but it mostly been used with the the Canon Powershot G1/2, but are this converter (WC-DC58 or Sony VCL-HG0758) will be fine, too for the GL2??
And how about the quality, and are there other converters you can recommend me??

Chunglee - I use the Canon WD-58H. It works for me. Nice wide shoots. No obvious distortion at edges. Where I bought it was having a special offer oin it got at 33% off the original price. Had to buy it!

hey chunglee: i also want to buy the wd-58h here in germany, but canon has not produced enough of them - there aren't enough out there, so it may take some time to get it. just thought you should know that.

Chunglee - There is a shop in central London - Tottenham Court Road called "ASK" that are doing the 58 Canon WD for £150.00GBp - I don't know how that compares with what you have been told? Their tel number is ++44 20 7323 2747 -

I hope that helps
