Default TCON17 on Fuji S602z

Hi, this is really a lens newbie question. I recently bought a TCON17 as it was reviewed as a better alternative than the Fuji Tele converter. My previous experience has been with slr continuous zoom lenses.

I'm sure you might appreciate my surprise after adding the TCON17 and adaptor at the 'toilet roll' image in the viewfinder. My question is really this. Would this lens do the same thing on Oly cams, conversely does the Fuji Tele con do this on a 602? I find that about 1/3 of the camera upper zoom is usable with the TCON17. Is this normal? I know the first element is as close to the Fuji front element as possible, and I'm asuming a lot wider more expensive glass would be needed to get a larger range - is this a fair assumption?.

Apart from my curiosity about the limited zoom range, in the short time I've tried it (at maximum camera optical zoom) it seems a very bright clean lens. Replies appreciated - VOX
