Normaly S7000 have a manufacturing designing defect of lense not extending. This happens due to broken gears in the lense movement assambly. The replacement of the broken gears will fix the problem

Lens on my S7000 doesn't retract when switched off - now permanently extended - and camera dead

This is going to require service / repair at the shop, not something you will be able to correct.

Do they make a converter for cannon len to fit fugi

Depends what you mean.

The Fuji s7000 is a fixed lens bridge camera, so you can't remove the lens and use an adapter and fit other lenses.

All that you can do is to git supplementary telephoto, wide angle and extreme close up (macro) lenses to the filter thread on the end of the lens; if you use what's called a reversing ring you can then (within reason) mount pretty much any SLR lens backwards onto the front of yours. The reversing ring screws into the filter threads of each lens and will be quoted in two sizes: these will be whatever the filter thread diameter is on each lens. By mounting a lens backwards, you effectively end up with an extreme macro lens, but it all depends upon which lens you choose. The reverse mounted lens will just be a dumb bit of glass, there will be no focus or aperture control and no communication of any information back to your s7000.

Hope that I've helped, if so please rate my answer.

Dropped my Fuji S7000. Am I doomed?

The lens is probably jammed internally. Get an estimate from your local quality camera shop. Sometimes the problem is easy to repair and sometime you'll need a new lens assembly (may cost more than the camera.)

My Fuji S7000 wont focus when I use a wide angle lens adapter.

I've since found out (via a Fuji forum) that the camera MUST be set to Super Forced Macro for the lens to focus ..... which it now does!
