Hi

I recently bought a telephoto lens for my Kodak DX7590 and the adapter ring that came with it was a 44.2mm to 52mm one and it doesnt seem to fit my camera. I've had a look on the Kodak site and thats the one they sell for the dx7590 too! Can anyone advise?

Thanks

It should be a 55mm one to fit their Schneider lens that they also sell. Here is the page with the correct adapter for the DX7590.

Thanks for your reply!! I dont have a problem with the 55mm or 52mm end that the telephoto lens attaches to its the end that screws into the lens of my camera that doesnt fit!! The adapter ring I have is 44.2mm which is a lot bigger than the threads on the lens of my DX7590. I measured it and it seems to nbe 38mm or there about! :?

Hi Starbeam, sounds like you're trying to attach it to the lens...the adapter attaches to the camera body, not the lens itself...easiest explanation is to turn on the camera, extend the lens, and slip the adapter over the lens. screw into the threads inside the metal ring

Starbeam...Dan is 100 percent correct and has shown the correct way to thread it on...Lots of folks think the adapter screws directly to the lens the way they do on the old film type Slr's and the new DSLR's..They don't....They screw into the lens housing at the base of the lens. That metal ring Dan mentioned...

Hi Starbeam,

It appears that you have the wrong lens adapter. What you really need for your camera is the following as shown on our web site.

"This black anodized aluminum adapter easily screws onto the front of a KODAK EASYSHARE DX6490, DX7590, or Z7590 Zoom Digital Camera allowing you to add 55 mm screw-on lenses or filters. This is a 55mm thread size adapter."

I am not of the lens that you bought, but if it is a Kodak lens then you need the noted adapter.

Talk to you soon,

Ron Baird
Eastman Kodak Company
