Will my normal lense cap work with the filter on or do I need to buy an additional lense cap?

Your gonna have to not use the flash. I don't think the TCON17 is supposed to be used when dark. But, should be good for outdoor shots when there is no need for flash. So, when you need to use the flash, unscrew the TCON17. And take the picture.

1. The TCON-17 when zoomed out to a usable range makes the flash unusable because the flash is not powerful enough to be of any use there. In other words your looking at something with the camera that is beyond the range of the flash. A slave flash or an auxilliary zoom flash will help but sometimes they are not powerful enough to reach out to the range your shooting!

2. Yes you will need a 55mm lens cap for any filters you add to the Z740 while using the adapter tube. They are not that expensive. I got mine from Wolf photo for about 5 bucks. The TCON-17 comes with both a base cap and a front lens cap as well as a leather pouch to keep it in!

bigdawg, I got the 55mm filters you recommended, but they are way to big. Do I have the incorrect adapter? I have the 45.5mm - 55mm filter that came with my camera. The filters say 55mm on them. Please help. I'm going to arizona at the end of next week and want these filters for the trip.
