The wider compatibility with the G10 and G11 offers some extra flexibility to owners of these models.
It's made from plastic, and that includes the filter threads, so you need to be careful not to crossthread them. When fitted it extends 31-49mm further than the lens ring it replaces (W-T, no filter fitted). The outside diameter is 66mm, so it protrudes about 5mm below the base of the camera. That means you can't sit it flat on a table - the camera ends up tilted back slightly. It also obscures the optical viewfinder, almost covering the entire bottom half in wide, but as you zoom in it obscures a lot less and becomes a slight blur at the bottom left of the VF.
Overall I think I can put up with those niggles, because it's more compact than the non-telescoping designs and you don't have to mess around changing the adapter length when you zoom in and out.
None of this extra creativity is possible without the holder of course. As for it sticking out from the body when placed on a table or similar, simply isn't an issue for me. 5mm? Not worth even considering... I have added a screw in lens hood for the filter holder which yet again simply cannot be done without this marvelous little gadget!
Despite the inflated price, the uses and versatility it brought to my photography with the G12 soon eased my (financial) pain...
As the price pain subsides I am very pleased with this bit of kit. It only gets four stars because of the price. For quality and function I would give five.
There's a plastic lens ring on the G12 which is what you remove and replace with the filter adaptor. Push and turn, and it clicks into place. There is a very subtle give so it doesn't feel 100% securely attached IMO.
The inner cylinder is springloaded so it retracts with the lens. I've used it with a Hoya 58mm UV filter (Hoya 58mm UV Filter) without any problems. Others have mentioned the shadowing in pictures. Not really noticed this outdoors because the flash isn't in use. Indoors, I can see where it might cause a problem. As others have mentioned, you need an additional flash to get round this. I have the 270EX II(Canon Speedlite 270EX II - Hot-shoe clip-on flash - 27 (m)) which attaches to the G12 hotshoe and gets around the problem of the shadowing by the virtue of its height.
Completely happy with the purchase.
