The following shots are from wide angle using the Schnieder Wide Angle lens, all the way to full zoom and using the Olympus TCON-17 Teleconvertor lens.

This one uses the normal lens and the zoom pulled back to wide angle.

Basicly what the Wide Angle lens will do is push the subject further away from you and give a much wider angle of view than the normal lens provided with the camera will do. The teleconverter lens will bring the subject closer to you and narrow the field of view more than the normal lens. The Wide angle lens helps when you are in a confined space like a room or on a deck or small yard, enabling you to see more of the area envolved. The tele lens will let you see thing further away, like wild life that would flee if you tried to sneak up on them, or subjects such as the rockets in the above photos that were in the first series 4-5 miles away or in the second series 2-3 miles away. I hope this helps !

I almost forgot. If you're planning to use these lens you will need the Kodak 55mm lens adapter for your camera. Also a Polorizing filter will help get better shots in bright sunlight or where there are reflections such as on water or car windshields or clouds as in the following two examples. The first one is without a filter

If you get a polorizing filter be sure to get the circular polorizing filter as it works better than the linear one on autofocus cameras. this one is with the polorizing filter. notice the contrast is much better than in the first and the sky is a richer shade of blue.

Here are two more to see the difference between wide angle and teleconverter.
