Perfect fit and great quality – 58mm Digital Camera Lens Adapter Tube for Canon S5 Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
This is perfect for Canon S3 (and probably also for S2 and S5). The bayonet fit for the camera is snug and does not wobble. Threads at the end are also very good. Professional black matte finish (darker than the S3 camera itself). Very solid construction. Very affordable.
Cons:
The carboard box it was shipped in was slightly damaged from transport.
Other:
The lens cap that comes with the camera will not fit this adapter so you need to have a 58mm lens cover. I got this one and it's perfect fit (even when zoomed the lens does not touch the cap):

Bottomline:
Perfect if you got one of the compatible cameras and want to use extra 58mm lenses or filters. Very affordable compared to other alternatives and perhaps even better in quality.
