I want a Canon G9 w wider angle lense

by jmark1949 / January 12, 2008 1:59 PM PST

I mean, I want a jacket pocket size point and shoot that is solid like the G9, has 8 or megapixels, a big screen in back, a great lense, AND.... the ability to add an accessory flash But I want it with a 28mm (35 equiv) capability. Or even wider. Is it coming? Does it exist?

You can buy the wide lens attachment for the G9. For this you need to buy a tube (adaptor) and the lens.
Then of course you can NOT have all three pieces in your pocket !
