hi

recently purchased a olympus c750uz
bought a kenko tcon and wcon lens and an olympus lens adaptor (downsizes the lens thread)
however the image isnt sharp and there is lots of vignetting when i use the additional lens..
is it due to the lens problem (lousy lens) or is it my camera problem?

can anyone recommend me a good tcon and wcon and also a macro lens?
or should i get a lens adaptor that upsizes?

thanks

The kenko lenses SUCKS, period. That should explain your image quality problem.

You should use Olympus' add on lenses instead, such as the TCON-17, WCON-07 & WCON-08.

Agree with you on that bro. Go for the Olympus TCON & Wcon. No regrets man.

There is. The best I know is the Olympus MCON-35 but it is quite rare since it has been discontinued. IMO, it is one of the best macro add on lens available.

You can also consider the Nikon 5T/6T, it is very good too. If you are on a budget, just get a Hoya +4 closeup filter with the right thread size that will fit your C750's lens tube.

BTW, it is a 'secret' that Olympus makes the BEST family of add-on lenses for prosumer and super-zoom digicams. Optically, their lenses are as good as it gets for the money you pay. :thumbsup:

Yeah...picture quality is good with the TCON-17.....however, at wide angles, vignetting is a very serious problem.....
Why do you wanna shoot wide angle when you attach a TELE-CONVERTOR to your camera? That is bewildering! :bigeyes:

wah.. 38-380mm equiv not enuff.. ;)

fwiw, imho good tcon and wcon cost alot. esp WRT the camera... the extra width or reach also i feel cannot really justify the price...
for closeup on the cheap, u can get those hoya close-up filter that let u focus nearly even when u zoom out...these are quite cheap and provide decent quality esp for the price...
imo if u wanna buy tcon/wcon etc etc to play maybe more worth to use a slr system.. *hint *hint e-500 ...
