There're various types of add-on lens for thr Olympus range of DC.....I assume u r refering to the Teleconverters in ur case.

Olympus B-300 1.7x HQ TC --> $280
Olympus C-210 1.9x HQ TC --> $70

The B-300 is a large diameter TC made in Japan with excellent zoom range.

Whereas the C-210, although got higher magnification, is smaller in size and has some pretty bad vignetting problem except at max zoom.

It's not that the C-210 is no good, just that the B-300 is much better.

Quality difference lah! ;)

The C-210 is meant more for a smaller lens while the B-300 is larger and will work better with more cameras.

Heard that the C-180 (1.7x) works better and costs the same as a C-210. you might want to try it. using a smaller aperture (larger #) would probably reduce vignetting as well.

the c210 and c180 doesn't work on the c700uz at all range without vignetting.

Hi guys,

I am torn between 2 choices. Have talked to some Gurus and they have given very good advises but still can't decide. I want to get a lens adaptor and UV filter. Later I may want to use TC or WC lens. IF I use CLA-1 lens tube and step up to 52mm then I can use the C210 or C180 later. But, it will give me flash shadowing and bla bla flash problem. If I take lens tube that step down to 37mm then no flash problem but 37mm TC may give me Vignetting problem and can't use C-210 and C-180 anymore. What do you guys think?

:dunno:

if you are to get a wide-angle converter, it'll definitely block the flash. And for 37mm threaded teleconverter, it'll likely block the flash as well unless yu get those monoscope type.
