I was wondering what would be a good add on lense in terms of a telephoto for the canon G3? Im want to take pictures of people surfing, I cant afford anything over 200 dollars right now. Any help would be awesome.

I use and really like the Canon Telephoto Adapter for the G3. It is under 200 and worth every penny...

Shaun I also have the Cnon Tele you can get it for $108.00 at B&H and you have to buy the adpter which is about $30.

Crystal view has a 8x tele attachment that sell for $189.00 and from the photos I have seen does a good job. Its like shooting with an 1100 mm lens. Andorama has it .

Does it work with the canon adapter? The Crystal view 8x?

Anyone ever bought accessories from http://www.cameragear.​com/ (external link)

This site seems to have good prices, just wondering if it is a reputable
retailer or not.

I just received last night (but haven't yet used) the Oly TCON-17. It's bigger and heavier (I guess a downside) than the Canon but (reportedly) gives a superior image (at least to some degree). It was $99 at B&H so it's actually about $10 less than the Canon. I will report back after I have a chance to use it. Than Canon and the TCON seem to be the best choices in the $100 range.

By the way, I am sure that people have referenced the site before but there is a good comparison of teleconverters that work with the G3/G5 athttp://kazutoku.cside.​com/G3CON_eng.htm (external link) (I hope the link works) including sample shots. That site was a primary factor in my decision. There also are a few samples at lensmateonline.com

Ooops, looks like John beat me to the link.

I went with the Canon Tele

I considered the Oly TCon17, but it was VERY heavy.

I went with the Canon tele converter, and just love it :D
