    depends on the model i guess. But i think as long as it fits the thread size, should be able to. But what kind of results u'll get, is another story.

    please provide more info. which tele lens are you refering ? brand and model? which prosumer camera are you talking about? brand and model..

    some lens may fit but may not perform to 100% of the functions. please provide more info.

    I see what you mean. This fuji S5700 is not able to have the lens replaceable ( your main lens is permanently fixed onto this camera body ). The Anscor lens that you are seeing at the ebay is only attaching to the front of your existing lens by thread ( if I am not wrong ).

    Personally, I have not used any of these, so... cannot comment too much. It is best that you try to mount the lens before you start paying for the lens, else the risk is all on your side.

    I've got a 0.5x wideangle lens addon for the S9500. And at the widest end of the zoom, u can see vignetting, which isnt too cool. But guess can jus crop it out though.

    If you consider the Nikon D40 to be a prosumer, yes.
