Sweet! I didn't realize the lens was interchangable on the G7. Good deal!

It'* an attachment around/outside the lens... existing one is still there. Lots of point and shoots have this ability

Interesting vignetting effect, IIRC if you don't desire that you can zoom in a bit. You lose the adapter'* effectiveness though, of course.

its not, but they make this little adapter that goes over the original lens. They included it for free!

those stools are ****, not "the ****", they are just plan ****. They are so flimsy they are lucky to hold a 110lb girl

The purse is my roommates, although I tend to borrow it for special occasions.
