Default Telephoto lens for C700

I posted this on the Olympus message board, but probably should have put it here, so... What is a good telephoto lens for the Olympus C700? It would be used mostly for outdoor wildlife shots. Thanks in advance.

Default Some suggestions..

It depends on the quality desired and how much you want to invest.

Perhaps the most bang for the buck would be the Olympus B-300 1.7x - hard to find - but try:


If they don't have it now, they will soon.

Next, would be the TCON-14B 1.45X - large - fairly expensive - heavy - excellent quality. Widely available on the web.

Next, the TCON-14 1.45X. Not quite as sharp as the TCON-14B, but still a good value. Much lighter and smaller and about half the cost. Available at most Olympus dealers and on the web.

Thanks Lin,

I have seen several people on this site talk about the B300. It seems to be the most popular. Is it really a much better lens than the TCON-14B? What makes it so popular?
