Let's count strength! :)

(had a typo previously.... :embrass: )

Also, list out the accessories you're using :)

Let me start:
1. Fujifilm Wide-angle converter kit (which comes with 55-55mm adaptor)
2. 55mm Hoya UV filter
3. RiData 256MB CF
4. NCP 128MB CF
5. 52mm Close-up filter
6. 52mm Circular Polariser
7. 8 point star filter
8. Metz 32-Z1 external flash
9. 55-52mm stepdown ring

Still considering a Microdrive ;p If the stock market moves favourably, I might just get it.

if anyone is looking for close-up filters, you could try Foto Guide (besides Cathay Photo, Peninsula). I got a Hoya 52mm +3 for $12.

I also just got a ND8 filter ($10) which reduces the amount of light entering the lens and allows slow shutter speed to be used during the day. This will allow "silky" water flow/falls to be captured.

Canon 58mm 1.5x teleconverter (meant for G1 and G2) should be quite good and it cost ~$140. But you would need to get a step-up ring but you have more zoom range to use.

Fujifilm 1.5x (with adaptor) costs around $170. It's light and from what I've heard, the quality is good. You also get a good zoom range.

I've the $70 Olympus C-210 1.9x but there's vignetting. To minimise vignetting at full zoom, I need to remove the UV filter.

There's another Olympus C-180 1.7x which costs $70 (at Mustafa previously). I think there would be less vignetting compared to the C-210.

So far, seems like there're very few cheap and good teleconverter. I wanted to try out the new Canon 2.4x teleconverter but the shops hadn't gotten it yet :(

Thanks

No problem :)

Fuji 1.5x from both Cathay Photo and MS Color.

Canon 1.5x from MS Color.

I didn't test out the quality though. You intend to get one of them?
