2x Teleconverter

Have been looking for a 2x teleconverter. Seems that the Century one is the one to get, but is expensive. Anybody know of any other options?

this may be a silly question but does anyone who has or has seent he sony 1.7x know if the lens hood will be able to stay on the gl2 while the teleconvertor is in use?

I had that setup- the hood has to come off.........optically the Sony is awesome- get it- you'll be happy.

Have you tried the digital zoom? Looks very smooth on the GL2

focusing

Does anyone have trouble focusing when using the 2x Teleconverter? I was testing mine out yesterday, and when I zoomed in all the way at 20x or 40x, I could not get focus, even with manual. It was overcast and an hour before sunset. Would the amount of light make any difference?
