As above. The olympus tc 210 seems to have been around for quite a while already. At least this is the vibe I got when the sales person initially quoted an obscenely high price for this before finally relenting to reduce. Gave me the feeling that it's old stock and wouldn't mind clearing it.

Secondly, while a 1.7x does add quite a fair bit of zooming power, I'd prefer it if there was one which has at least 3x. Heard of sharpshooter but heard have to order online.

Thirdly, the oly 210 was originally intended for a non- digital camera right? So are there any other tc compatible with the oly 2000 series?
