Default Cool Pix 4300 Help

Help, need input ! Will the new 4300 work as well as the 4500 with my Kowa TSN 824 80mm with 20-60 zoom eye piece?
Many thanks,

I'm not familiar with the lens you are talking about, but when I did a search, it looked like a huge scope. I don't think the 4300 will work quite as well because it requires an adapter to bring it to 28 mm threads. Since the lens does protrude when it zooms, you can get vignetting at lower zoom. To my knowledge, the 4500 lens optics is all internal so external lenses attach directly to the camera

I don't think that will be a problem as Nikon has designed the camera to work with the same lenses as the 4500. With the lens adapter and proper menu setting for lens selection it should give similar performance. As the lens you mentioned is an aftermarket one, you might check with the manufacturer if this lens has been tested with the 4300.

Good luck!
