You will need to purchase an adapter tube. You can contact the folds at www.2filters.com for help

It's not just fit, but also compatibility with the camera's own lens (as some combinations aren't a good marriage). The Tcon is one of the better ones on the market.

I don't know what size the Tcon size is (might be 55mm as Oly filter tube adapters are 55mm, but you can get step-up/down rings)...also it depends on what size filter adapter tube you yourself get for your S5000 (43, 52, or 55mm)!

I use the TCon 17 on my Oly 4040 and Nikon 5700. It works well with both cameras. The 4040 optical zoom is increased to 5X (est) and the Nikon to 12+X (est). I have to use a tripod with the Nikon at that focal length.

The TCON-17 is a 55mm convertor, right? Unlike the S602, the S5000 comes with the adapter tube, no need to buy anything.
