Summary: DIGITALetc is excellent! My package arrived timely and communication with the seller was excellent; I was provided with shipping and tracking details promptly. My package was well protected, too. The lens is awesome! I attached it to my Canon Powershot A10 and it works great! I'm happy to have this lens as this telephoto lens was the last one I needed to complete my accessories.
Summary: There seems to be some confusion about this lens. It works great with the Canon A series cameras, but it will not work with S series. The S3 cannot focus with this lens on it. Just a heads up for the S series owners.
A good lens, but it has some interesting limitations...

Summary: As an amateur photographer who grew up on a Canon SLR, I needed more out of my digital Canon Powershot A70. A simple tele-converter seemed to be a good start. However, this lens has some interesting drawbacks that might not be intuitive or expected. 1. It requires a adapter conversion ring to connect it to the camera, because the zooming standard lens needs space to extend outward - the ring (tube)provides that inch or so.
Summary: I used this on the cannon A85. It worked very well. I got some nice shots at the Kennedy Space Center (where you cannot always get close to the sites). The shortcoming is that when the camera is on low magnification (zoom level where the standard lens would work), the shot does not fill up the screen. It is like you are looking down a tube. So if you are going back and forth between close shots and far away shots, you need to change lenses.
