Thread: Where is the best place to get Teleconversion Lens?

  1. #1

    Default Where is the best place to get Teleconversion Lens?

    Hi everybody, i am new to this forum and as well as photography. I bought a Fujifilm S5500 recently, and thought of getting a Teleconversion Lens to prepare myself for my China trip at the end of the year. Therefore, i need you guys advices on where to get and which type to get. I wish to get a tele len that has at least a 1.7x zoom. My thread is 55mm. Please advice to this newbie~ Thanks so much.

    Nice I also got the S5500 recently...one of the moderators recommended the Olympus TCON 17 to me cos I asked the same question....just a few threads down...

    Well, i have seen many good previews about Olympus Tcon17. But i am very new to the world of photography. So i need some guidance on where to get it at a cheap price. I am also considering to get a wide conversion lens. So which one do you think is better? Or should i get both?

    Heehee glad to find S5500 users in this forum.

    Hi boroangel, if you interested in getting a TCON lens, how about getting it by Mass Order? Would that be cheaper? Are you considering WCon lens?

    Hi i din manage to get olympus Wcon and Tcon, as i find them abit to expensive to buy new ones. Second hand ones are already snatched by ppl in this forum. So i got my Wide Angle (Giottos) from Peninsula for $90 and Tele 2.0x (Vitacon) from yahoo auction for $60. I personally feel that they are good enough for me. Still a newbie, cant really differential good or bad. So get something cheap to start with first. Hehee... Fun to play with these lens.
