Hello I recently just ordered the oylmpus Tcon 17 for my P850 seeing there were pretty good reviews on it. Now I'm considering the Olympus WCON-07C .7x Wide Angle Conversion Lens. Has anyone tried this? I believe it's 55mm so I should be ok, right? Any suggestions are appreciated.

I was just looking and there is a Olympus WCon 07 and WCon 07C. Anyone know the difference and if they are both 55mm.

Thanks

The 07c uses a special bayonet mount not a thread and thus needsa special mounting adapter to fit to a camera, and is constructed with 3 elements in 3 groups and is fractionally heavier than the 07.

The 07 uses normal 55mm threads and is constructed of 4 elements in 4 groups.
