Wide angle converter

So... I found out that the century .7 converter doesn't fit the 20x lens for my XL2. Yeah, I missed the bit about it fitting the 16X lens.Does any one know if I can use it on the canon 3X lens?
Thanks
Jon

Hi Jon. Which converter do you have? The 0.7x has been able to fit the 20x lens for the past 2 years or so, but you should be able to tell from the converter's model number.

It must be an older model, Richard. It's marked as Pro Dv .7X Wide Angle Converter. The glass on the rear element of the converter touches the front of the 20X lens.
