This is the new filter adapter for the G12 which I believe is backwards compatible with the G11 and perhaps other models too. I’m a little surprised that it has received no mention on this forum so far.
I recently took my G11 out to a beach to photograph some statues when the wind was blowing 30+ knots and sand blowing everywhere. Needless to say, the odd grain or two of sand found its way behind the lens covers which was subsequently vacuumed out.
Hopefully, this new filter adapter will provide some much needed protection for the front lens element and allow the use of other filters when needed. My daughters G9 has just failed with its lens in the open position and it makes me wonder if, after some 20,000 miles of travelling, she would have benefited from this type of protection too.

I recently gave a G6 to a friend, I held back the Hyundai lens adaptor in case it would fit the G12 when I buy one, do you know if it will?

I notice this new filter adapter also, but have found very little information on it, or anyone discussing it. I think most folks with a G10/G11 have already found a filter solution through Lensmate or clones. It looks like the new Canon adapter somehow moves with the lens, and eliminates the vignetting issues. However, I'm not certain it is compatible with the G11 lens (or G10).

Sorry for the lack of picture but I had asumed most people would "google" it.

There is a picture of it here:

It doesn't seem to be available yet. I'm very interested to know if it works with the G11, since I have not bought any adapters for my G11 yet.

Michael - I emailed my dealer and he checked with Canon so he's ordered it for me. £49 here in UK but I also have Lensmate adapters on the way which were despatched yesterday. Looking at the G12, it still uses the same adapters as previous models so I had naturally assumed that in order to do so, the new adapter must be backward compatible.

I'm hoping that both will provide good protection from dust and fine sand. The new Canon adapter is due for availability from next week and I'm eager to see if there is a good seal between the static and moving part. If not, its going back!

Adorama lists it as being designed for Powershot G10, G11, G12: http://www.adorama.com​/ICAFADC58B.html (external link)

This might save me a bundle - being able to buy a 58mm polarizer instead of 72 or 77mm.

That looks like a must have adaptor, neat and small and does the trick…

It's listed on Amazon for $39 with free shipping, but no image for it, and it's not available yet.

I would say that's a good idea. It will also help protect the cover slats on the front of the lens.

I use a lens adapter on my G9 and kept it on all the time. If I use my smaller camera case, I separate the adapter and can store both bare G9 and the tube in the case. Mount the adapter whenever needed.

As for the new G12 adapter, I am skeptical (from the pictures on the link). It seems the G12 lens would have to bump and push the extension tube out when zooming. Probably you have to manually collapse the adapter extension?

I seem to remember reading that it is lightly spring loaded, therefore is moves with the lens, and returns with the springs.

I can't tell...this mounts to the adapter ring on the body like a Lensmate, or is it a press-fit onto the lens barrel? I'd be concerned about using a heavy TC if it mounts to the barrel...or for that matter, shooting towards the ground if it's "lightly spring loaded".
