So what's the final judgement?

Is there a final recommendation from all this, the best solution? Does the 2.0x with the General Brand 72-58 step ring do a great job?

And to clarify the one post on bayonet or screw mount, do I look for the lens and step in screw mount for my Z1U?

Thanks to all.

since this thread was started, century optics released a 1.6x extender. check out boyd's pics and evaluation....

much better than the jerry-rigged solutions we proposed but a tad expensive...

Dear John thanks for this info I īve got the Canon c-8 1.6 from the www.the-camera-house.co.uk and my Canon 1.4x from Ebay
But the Canon C-8 does not seem to have a thread for the 48 adapter to fit in, am I missing something or do I have to (Kludge-glue) them together? :)

Hey Jose

the answer is under your nose :)

Camera > 72-58 > 58-48 > Canon 1.6x > 72-67 > Canon 1.4x

the numbers refer to step down filter rings you need so that it all screws together

eg 58-48 means a 58mm to 48mm step down ring etc




also see a clip I posted here

Thanks John
I did actually understood the statement you wrote Camera > 72-58 > 58-48 > Canon 1.6x > 72-67 > Canon 1.4x
and already ordered the step down rings from B&H but my post was refering to the C-8 because I received it today and it seems that it doesnt have a thread in the 48mm side :)
Anyway I will wait for the adapters to arrive and will post some photos if it works

Sounds as though you have the distance scale attachment still fitted

undo the knurled screw and remove it via a twisting action; after it is removed you will see the 48mm male threads

Damn. Been using my canon c8 for a few years now but I lost it during a shoot in india.
I found a second hand C8 1.8 telecoverter on the internet.
I used to have a C8 1.6.
Anyone know if I can use the C8 1.8 on my Z1 too?
Can t find info on this one.
