Is there a 2x extender for ex3?

I am soon going to be purchasing an EX3.
However I have been stalling, hoping that a 2x extender will become available.

I do a lot of sports work and the distortion and limited range of a teleconverter will not be acceptable. Nor is standing in the middle of the baseball field.

Has anyone seen or heard of one?

What you really want to do is get the 1/2 to 2/3" adapter and get a really nice 19x lens for about a grand or a 22x for a bit more. There are also a lot of really nice 1/2" lenses out there too. We have two DSR-300 Sony cameras with 18x lenses. We can shoot a solid torso shot at 85 feet. I have a Century 1/2" doubler that I would sell, also.

Thanks Steve,

Regarding the 1/2 inch Century doubler:
Does that go between the camera body and lens? If so, it seems to contradict what the Century sales person told me. He said that Sony has a non standard fitting to the fujinon lens, and that did not have a 1/2 that would work. Have you tried yours on an ex3

Not yet. Actually, I forgot I had it till I was cleaning a cabinet out a few days ago.
