The B300 should give good pictures from the Olympus C3040. I have tried it with a C3040 and an OpticZoom and that gave fantastic results so it should be great just with the C3040, albeit with a lower overall zoom. It will give you 1.7X zoom on top of the 3X zoom you have on the C3040 i.e. about 5.1X.

You will need a standard Olympus connector tube (called a conversion lens adaptor CLA-1) for the camera, and then the required step up ring(s) from the connector tube (43mm) to the B300 lens (55mm).

Just ot add to my reply above, the 5.1X zoom I quoted was at full telephoto.

Also, be aware that as I have not tried the B300 on its own with the C3040, I am not sure if you get any vignetting. I would think that it would be fine at full zoom but may give some vignetting at some point as you zoom back.

You can get details of the B300 and even buy a new one at www.eagleeyeuk.com - I have just bought one.
