Not that I know of yet, Boily-

But to tell you the truth, I have given some thought to it already.

I know it works well enough with my P850.

The adapter is the same and the TCON-17 should work just fine!! Paul its time to get the canned air after that lens!!

I know that it works with the P850!!!

The problem is that the P880 have a 24mm wide angle and only a 5.8x zoom...

I want to know if the tcon 17 will cause vignetting on the pictures!!!

It shouldn't do, but if you want zoom take the 6490 setup with you.

With my SLR setup, I hardly take out a lens over 105mm these days. I would enjoy the wide angle freedom of the P880 instead of worrying about if you can get more zoom.

Boily and Paul-

I ordered and received the P-880 filter adapter. It will only work with either the Tcon add-on telephoto or the Kodak Acessory 1.4X Telephoto lens at full zoom due to some serious vignetting.

I must be missing something here... If you're going to lay out that much money for a P880 plus additional lens, filters, whatever... why not just spend the SAME money on a DSLR?

FB-

The P-880 camera is a good camera. However, when you put the adapter on it it looks like this.
