    Saw your ultra-long zoom lens..... and your 24X zoom capability.... on S-One.

    What is the extra attachement lens you used? I want to get a similar one for my Canon DC... 52mm treaded.. dunno can or not.

    Hi,

    That looks like either the Kenko 8x32 monocular or the CrystalVue Sharpshooter 8x monocolar. By itself, it's 8x. Coupled with the Coolpix's 3x zoom, you get 24x. Of coz, the appropriate adaptor rings are required.

    The 990 is 3x zoom, the 995 is 4x zoom with a pop-up flash. 990 is obsolete already. (and so is my old 950).

    Regards
    CK

    Hi Mystix, I did not stack up a bunch of tc's, Just 1 TC lens.. hmm.. differences between 990 and 995.. see here http://www.dpreview.com/review/nikoncp995/ ... Think 990 is already phased out.. so is my 950..

    from the website supplied, it seems that the kenko type have vignetting, while the crystalvue one have minimum.

    It's USD149. Anyone know where can I get crystalvue in singapore? Cathay?

    I believe everyone here ordered the crystalvue one right?

    Is there any vignetting being experienced?

    Yes... the crystalvue one is much better than the kenko

    There is a good amount of vignetting on the 950, you have only about 40-50% of zoom range at the telephoto end without vignetting.

    Interestingly, on the 990, I have almost 80-90% of the zoom range available...

    hmm... I don't know if it can work on the G2, but if you see me on the next gsthering, you can try it out..

    wow! that's good. I was thinking of ordering one too.... but budget constraints.... unless I managed to get some bonus.
