Hello I was just wondering what the best Telephoto Lens is for the Kodak P850... By the way the lens has to be 55mm.....:-)

I would go with the one from Kodak vs a generic brand as it will be better matched to the original P850 optics.

Don't you trust us at the Kodak forums Shooting_rubber :lol:

The Oly Tcon is the way to go... I should be getting mine within a few weeks.

Heh, I'm not gonna get a TCON right away with my P712. I wanna see if the 12x zoom will be enough to fit my needs. If its off by just a little.... I think I'll go for the Kodak TCON. Because, its probably better quality and works better with the P712.:roll:

If its off by a good bit... I'll go with the TCON17 from Olympus.

I know I've seen some fabulous shots with the OLY TCON17... (Thanks Boily! XDD ) but, it might work differently with the P712... Anyway, I'm still undecided as to which I'll get! XD Or if I'll even get one... :roll:

If you mind extra cost, the best teleconverter lens is perhaps the Nikon TC-E17ED 1.7X. You will need a 55-60mm step-up ring. See my FZ-30 user guide for more details.
