Default B300 or Tcon 14B

What would be better to buy? The B300 or Tcon 14B, to use on the C2100.

Either one works perfectly with the C2100UZ. The B-300 gives you 95mm more zoom and is a good bit lighter (easier to hold).

As far as chromatic aberration is concerned, there is a bit more with the TCON-14B, especially red/green fringe on the left side of the images, but it's only magnifying what's already there from the 10x zoom lens.

The TCON-14B is a tiny bit sharper in the edges, but you can get incredibly good images with either. If you don't need the additional 95mm, the TCON-14B may be a bit less expensive and is widely available.

Here's one of my images from the C2100UZ and B100 which has been corrected for small chromatic aberration with Picture Windows Pro 3.1 (goose) and another from the same camera and my TCON-14B which has likewise been processed with Picture Windows Pro 3.1 (seals)

Those are beautiful photos, Lin...and I assume they are not even your professional work since they're on your web site...

Don't trust her, Oly...she can get great shots shooting through a
Coke bottle!
