I'm not sure about the TC58, but try to compare the prices with Cathay or John316, especially for the Vitacon.

Last time I asked for a Vitacon WA 0.5x from AP, they quoted me around 180 for a 58 mm, but when i checked with John316, they offered me around 120-130. So please check the prices out especially for the Vitacon. I asked John316 about the 2.0xVitacon teleconverter and i think they told me it's around 120-130 too.

Best if you double check.
Gd luck.

well, never tried the Vitacon 2.0x teleconverter, but on the vitacon WA 0,5x , the quality of the picture wasn't really good at the edges. Wonder how the quality of the vitacon 2.0x is. Yeah, some teleconverters don't give accurate statements of their multipliers

I am already very happy that they did not treat me like a tourist and jack up the prices. Either way, as far as TC is concern, i have decided to settle with the canon original TC-DC52 2.4x TC. All i have to do is to wait.

oh, there's a TC52 2.4x? or u're referring to the 1.4TC?
So far, bought the olympus c210 1.9x, hoping to try it out at sungei buloh soon. It's the cheapest alternative to the b300, slightly more reach but with slight vignetting at the corners, but ok i guess for bird/nature pics

The Vitacon one seems grossly overpriced.

The new TC52 is a new model which replaced the old 1.4x version. On all the canon sites i can find, TC-DC52 is now refered to as a 2.4x part.

Did you get your prices right? Like what mpenza mentioned, the vitacon is grossly overpriced.

However, looks like the Canon TC-58 is very competitively priced.

Too bad vitacon 2x TC cannot be used on my Canon A40, after fitting A40 refuse turn on properly. It seem after fitting 2x TC vitacon, it obstruct A40 lens to extend when power on. Error code E18. Mscolor quote me <$100.

Expensive?? :dunno: They must be joking! It cannot be more expensive than the TC-DC58. Check the various websites.

maybe it's expensive to Canon Singapore to bring it in ;p the margin mght be too low for them to think it's worthwhile.
