My step-father would like to get a telephoto lens for his Fuji S5200 and I was wondering if any of you guys or gals could recommend an honest internet site that he might deal with in buying one.

I've looked on eBay and the big number dealers all seem suspicious.

Any help would be appreciated.

hi, I read your post and I have a fujifilm s5200 and I want a mega zoom. I do watercolour portraits and use mostly photographic references. Sometimes I need to pull in a person or group from very far away to get clarity, or else I can't use the photograph for the painting. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Victoria

My step-father bought a telephoto lens 3x from ebay and we were very disappointed with it. If you're going to buy a telephoto zoom lens, make sure you can try it out before you buy it otherwise you may piss away $80.00 or so.

opteka 2x is not popular here but I love mine. I got it at Amazon for $29.00. If you are not a pro it will do a good job/ I have the s5200 also.

I need a UV filter that I think is 72mm but I can't find this info.

Hi............

The s5200 is the same as the s5600 if im right and if so the you can use the Fuji TL-FX91.5 telephoto or the Fuji WL-FX9 wideangle with no need to use the adapter or you canuse the Olmpus Wcon - 07 wideangle or the Olmpus Tcon 17 1.7x telephoto lens again without any adapter. I prefer the Olmpus lenes
