    I'm searching for Teleconverter lenses for the S3 IS, as well as good
    wide angle and macro lenses. Canon tells me not to use any lenses not
    made by Canon. Does anyone out there know if thirdy party lenses are
    compatible with The S3 IS and its adapters, and if they produce good
    pics? I'm asking b/c Canon's lenses only provide 1.5 times mag, while
    others provide between 2 and 3 times. Any help will be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Canon are full of bullshit. I have the S2 IS and happily use my old Fuji teleconverter with the
    appropriate adapter ring.
