I was browsing Ebay thinking about getting a lens adapter for my 6490..I noticed there are two different sizes.Is there any difference in the two..one better than the other and if so why? Love to hear some opinions..Thanks

Kashka, get the 55mm because of vignetting and if you plan to get a TCON or wide angle later you will need the 55mm

Thanks,Bob..I was sort of leaning that way..good to stay with what the manufacturer makes.I was just curious about the diffs and like to research before I make the plunge.
thanks again,

Defenantly the 55 Lisa. Bob said it right vignetting will be more of a problem with the 52.

Also found that the 52mm adapter threads are short,,only go in a few threads compared to the kodak adapter,,,be aware of that....

Thanks,Brian..thats good to know.I'm also curious I found a "flower" hood 55mm adapter.Does the shape of the hood have any neg ative effect on the photos?..I dunno..maybe it's just me ..I think it's pretty cool looking but rather would have better pics..
