Hi have you ever tired a tele/wide attachment with your cams, am assuming its the same adapter tube for the z1012 as per earlier models, can you leave the tube in place and use a wide-angle permanently attached?, does the lense vignette down the tube? just windering about the options and if you could add a close-up filter?
I have the Kodak 49-55mm adapter tube P/N 8379165 and the S-K 1.4x telephoto auxilary lens and have used the combination with my Z612. It is the same tube for all of the Z*12 series and Kodak appears to be out of stock at the moment.

The Kodak adapter tube attaches to the fixed portion of the lens barrel and is long enough to preventthe extending portion of the lens from contacting anything attached to the adapter. The result is that the lens must be zoomed a fair amount to prevent vignetting. It is primarily useful for attaching the S-K 1.4x telephoto auxilary lens (TCON) or the Olympus 1.7x equivalent.

One could use the adapter with filters or close-up lenses but only with the camera lens zoomed to the longer focal lengths. This pretty much negates the use of WA aux. lenses and Kokak never offered one.That same factor may also reduce the utility of close-up lenses.

Bottom line: You can't just put the tube on and leave it on.

I think most people benefit from a uv filter?

As a minimum people should be able to add a UV filter/polariser to their cams, imagine too you could add close-up filters and wide-angles to give real 23mm wide f2.8 landscapes??

Doubt what?

The adapter or the filter attachment or the wide/tele adapter?

On Friday August 22nd you wrote, "I think most people benefit from a uv filter?" which, while ending with a question mark appears to be a statement. Whether it was a statement or a question I don't think most (if any) people benefit from a UV filter.

Oh, then you are not a photographer in which case polarisers/nd's etc will all be lost on you too!

Also, the adapter will allow you to add a wide-angle/tele with ease but then you wont benefit from that or a close-up achromatic lense/filter.
