I have seen quite a few excellent shots on this forum taken with various teleconverters. As a new owner of the P850, can someone clarify which gives the best image quality? I have seen references to Olympus and Kodak, but are any adapters necessery in order to fit these? Has anyone got a photo of the camera with one fitted?

I have the olympus tcon17and it gives superior image quality in the day. The Olympus is 1.7X Magnification and the Kodak is only 1.4X Magnification, which does make a difference. You will need the Kodak 53-55mm lens adapter for both of these to work.

In a 35mm camera format this is what your full optical zoom range would be:

With the Olympus TCON 17 it would be 432mm multiplied by 1.7=734.4mm.

With the Kodak TCON it would be 432mm multiplied by 1.4=604.8mm.

You can buy both of these from www.bhphotovideo.com.

Here is the link for the Olympus TCON 17 to buy from :http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...ughType=search

Here is the link for the Kodak lens adapter.

Tell me if this helps?

Thanks for your rapid response. Very helpful. I will probably go for the same setup if I can source from the UK.
