Default i need a b300

Hi:
Does anyone know where i can find a b300 tele? i realize they are discontinued and i have heard they are a good lense for my sony 707 digicam? Is that true and if getting one is an impossibility can someone give me some advice to the next lense that might do a good job to tele with? Thanks Chris Carr

Dont we all?...

I'm in the same boat..."looking for a b300" but Ive also heard Olympus has a 1.4x Tele too called TCON 14B. (its a 1.4x not a 1.7x, but some have said its as sharp if not sharper)

Bare with me one second...Don't ya think that somebody would...BY NOW...bring to market a 2X / 3X Tele similar to the B300? Is it too opticly hard? (is that a word opticly?) Not too sure I understand why nobody wants to cash in...do you know how many people want this lens? I'd guess quite a few, cause its either sold out or backordered...ok I'm done ranting...

Have a nice day!

PS...have you seen the digiscope section of the forums...Ohhh...these guys take excellent close ups from incredible distances with a digial camera connected to a tele/spotting scope. ooohhhh myyyy! makes 1.4x and 1.7x seem wimpy...

There are 8 of them on Ebay as of 6/20.
Go to Ebay, "Camera and Photo", type in "b 300" in the search window and checkmark "only in photo".

Default TCON-14B

I would still like to try the Legendary B-300, but I just bought the TCON-14B and am seriously impressed with it. It takes super sharp photos. I took a shot from an Eagleeye 5x with the TCON-14B attached to the front. It was a baby duck and the photo was taken handheld and it turned out so crisp. Great lens and well worth the money. My Opinion. Thanks
