Default Tiffen 2x

Hello. Does anyone know if the Tiffen mega plus 43 2x tele lens fits the Olympus c730? If yes, what is your opinion about it? Thanks a lot.

Tiffen's MegaPlus has two versions: 37mm and 43mm. As long as your c730 has an adapter or lens thread less than 43mm, you can use either lens. However, step-up rings may be required.

I highly recommend you consider the Olympus TCON-17. It is a much higher quality lens and only costs average $100 USD. It will work on y oru camers just fine with a $6 step ring adapter to fit the tcon's 55mm threads.

Go with Wmax's idea. I have the tiffen 2X and have not seen one sharp photo after probably about 300-400 shots. Not impressed.
Can you go to a store, put on both lenses and take the same photo you can look at at your computer afterwards?
