Default Olympus C-5050Z

I am looking for a top-quality telephoto lens for the C-5050Z. I know of the Olympus TCON-1.7x (178.5mm) and the Raynox DCR-1850PRO (194mm). Would anyone know of a 2x or even 3x that would be compatible with the C-5050Z? Something with top-quality optics! THANKS!

Top quality 3x telecovertor. That's a tall order. THe only unit avaialbe that could be considered excellent optical behaviour(for the relative magnfication) would be the Olympus TCON-300. But, the cost of this unit is approx. $600 USD. In additino, it requires a custom fabricated adapter mount plate to fit to cameeras other then the E-10/E-20. Typical prices for having custom plates made at a machine shop have been in the $100 and above range. So, if you REALLY want 3x of quality on the c5050, break out the dollars. :-)
