    In Fact! I have a spare 2x Tele and 0.5x Wide Angle Lense which is 52mm. They are silver, Brand New, never been used, i bought black ones straight after as they matched my camera better. I also have a complete 3 piece filter kit to go with them. Any offers?

    Woosey, Please PM me or send me an email and we can discuss, they are brand new in the lense bags, with three adaptors for conversion to other sizes but you wont need them if its 52mm your after.
