I was considering buying the fuji telephoto conversion for my S5100, but I read some reviews and everyone said the lens sucked. Does anybody know an alternative to it? Can you just use any 55mm telephoto lens?
Thanks.

Hmmmmm. You mean the equivalent of up to 1300mm+ isn't enough? Even at high-res you've got 300mm. And a pretty speedy one at that.

The problem I see with any of the conversion lenses is that they can only be used in tele-mode. Another is that the flash can't be used. Both limitations make sense.

I think many people like the Olympus TCON-17. 1.7X added zoom. It costs about $100 online.



Go here for online pricing. http://www.dealtime.com/xPC-Olympus_...aptor~S-P~OR-0

the fuji and the olympus are the same glass with different labels

the olympus is cheaper

neither lens will work except when the camera is zoomed to the max! (severe vignetting will result except at maxoptical zoom)

people expected the lens to work at all zooms and were disappointed
