I've an Olympus [size=C-750 Digital Camera with an adapter of 55mm Screw Filter Thread "can be 52mm using step down ring".. I need a Tele-Converter that can fit with magnification 5x or at least 3x... I found many that will fit but I'm not sure whether the Optics will be alright or not, vignetting will occure in picture or not.][/size]
[size=I thought about "KENKO KUT-500 - 5x " as 5x magnification or Kenko KUT-300HI 3.0x]for 3x magnification..[/size]

[size=Is there is any other options?][/size]

[size=Thanks in advance.][/size]

The Kenko 3X may work. However, the 5X will not work because (1) its thread size is 37mm which is too small for your cam (i.e., vignetting may occur), and (2) the exit pupil is also too small. Moreover, the image quality of the 5X is not high enough for modern digicams. I believe, if I recall correctly, the 5X was made for small size video cams. My Coolpix 4500 has some info about this 5X.
