    Default Telephoto Coverter = Blur image..???

    Currently, I had an Canon A70 camera with a Grobartig 2.5x tele-converter
    But I find that the pictures taken with the teleconverter seems to be quite soft, is there anyway to improve it..????

    Or does the probelem Lies on the tele-lens itself..>?????..pls help me....

    lies in the tele lens itself. it's meant for video cameras which is ~0.3MP. using it on a digicam and expecting decent quality is not realistic.

    my advice is to get a better quality tele lens - like Olympus TCON17.

    it there any tele-lens that you can recommend.//????

    I am considering to buy a kenko 0.7x wide-agngle converter but due to the bad
    experience that I have, not very confidence to buy it.

    Olympus generally makes very good converters. try the Olympus WCON07 for wide angle.

    they're both 55mm.

    then don't get any. you could physically walk and get the framing you want most of the times.

    Whats the point of doing so if you can ? If you put a 0.7 and a 1.4, you end up getting 0.98..
    Use a wide angle (0.7x) if your widest is not wide enough.. to bring 28mm to 19.6mm..
    use a telephoto convertor (1.4x) if your telephoto is not long enough.. to bring 100mm to 140mm..
