49mm. Vignetting till about halfway down.

Why is ur 2.0 only giving u 1.3??

On an Oly 2100UZ, a 2.0 tele would give u 760mm optical zoom. And with the 2.7x digital zoom(which i don't bother with) this will stretch to 2052mm.

you can measure the length of a subject with the teleconverter on and the length of the same subject with the teleconverter off. divide the 2nd by the first to get the zoom factor.

I tried my Uzi with an Olympus BC-510 3.2X teleconverter. Got some vignetting at full optical.

Picture taken with it can be viewed at www.pbase.com/galaa under BC510 folder

:p
the "BC 510" is actually a combination of 2 very popular C2100uz Lens, the C210 and B300(both from Oylmpus).
C210(1.9x zoom)+B300(1.7x zoom)=BC510(3.2x zoom)

Actually its way overpowered...until now I still havent really used them together in actually photo taking. I usually only used B300 if I needed long range shooting(B300 doesnt have vignetting, so I prefered it over C210).
Think BC510 is only needed if Ur going to take photos in jungle...

Read Galaa's post more carefully. There is no such thing as a "BC-510". :D

In case anyone here hasn't seen this, do check out this visual reference from DPReview on the amount of vignetting to expect with various popular teleconverter combinations on the Oly C-2100UZ/E-100RS.

The point is that for the C2100 only the B300 works best , i am looking for one right now in the Greek market ,i will have some news in few days .
I am looking also for one TIFFEN wide angle Megaplus 0.75X .
As this one ,it does also great work , even if it has 44mm thread
