Telephoto lens question

I'm looking to get the Century Optics 2.0x Tele-Converter lens for my GL2. What are the pros and cons of screw mount versus bayonet mount?

correct me if i am wrong but...

bayonet mount gets the lens on and off much faster (think of your lens hood) and ive been told it is much tighter

Bayonet vs Screw-On Mounts

I too am pondering this question. Does the GL2 accept a bayonet mount? Does the GL2 need an adapter to use the bayonet mount?

No adapter needed for the GL2, the Century optics 2 x Converter fits directly on, you don't even have to remove any filters you may have on first.
