I purchased a Kodak DX 6490 along with some accessories.

One is a tube adapter so I can add filters or add on lenses or whatever.

The adapter I purchased is 55mm.

My question is....If I want to purchasea macro or telelens, does it have to be proprietary or will any 55mm tele lens work?

I'm new to photgraphy, so please bear with the silly questions...

I see so many lenses on eBay but everything that is listed as"designed for Kodak DX6490" is 52mm.

I see tons of other lenses that are 55mm that say they're designed for other brands.

Is this just a marketing ploy?

Will any 55mm tele or macro lenses work with my camera?

Thanks in advance for all the help I'm sure to get.

Almost all aftermarket lenses will work with the DX6490,,,,but with variable results too though,,,,most aftermarket lenses are junk,,,,,,so be carefull and buy a good brand name from a supplier that will refund your money if they do not work well....

The oly TCON17 is widely used by me and other people that have this camera,,,and works very well....the only other brand i`d spend money on is the Raynox brand lenses,,,both are of good quality,,,,,,

You are best to stick with the 55mm lenses too as vignetting will occur,,,

Welcome!!! Always remember in this forum there are NO SILLY QUESTIONS. The gentlemen and ladys in this forum have been just that to me. Also Brianhare knows his stuff. I for one intend on picking his brain a lot with all kinds of questions.
