These are all great shots and the P850 has to be a serious contender IF I upgraded from my DX6490, which like Dawg I think is tops for what it is. And with a few 'extras' on the end of the lens brings home the bacon every time without breaking the bank.

I guess all the converters used have 55mm threads ??

You've got it Max!! The 55mm teleconvertor and wide angle have less vignetting than those 52mm lens you see advertised on EBay etc. The Kodak adapter for the DX6490 and the DX7590 and the Z740 and the P850 et. al is a 55mm one because that works better with the built in lens of the cameras! It's designed to work best, so why not use what's designed to work best??

Hi Pepperson,

I can appreciate your interest.

Not sure what your main use or need for these lenses might be, but you can multiply the focal length of the lens by 1.4 to see the difference numerically. I believe it comes to something like 16.8 instead of 12 or by multiplying 36–432 mm x 1.4.

This comes to: 50.4 x 604.8

This is an amazingly long telephoto. Keep in mind that to shoot and get a really sharp picture using a telephoto at 432mm is pretty hard to do. The IS feature of the camera helps, but it is a good idea to have a good support. If you do get these lenses, then be sure to use support when shooting at the extreme.

There is a .7 Wide angle as well to make the magnification equivalent to 26.6 mm. It is a great lens and I like the shots I took with it.

What do you want to shoot with these lenses?

Talk to you soon,

The 1.4 Schneider takes the 12X to 16.8. The Olympus TCON17 at 1.7 takes the 12X to 20.4X!! The quality is about the same. Y'all be the judge! If you are willing to spend a bit more, the Raynox 2020 Pro at 2.2X takes the 12X to 26.4. The Raynox costs $189.00 plus shipping from BH Photo Video. The Kodak Schneider lens costs $119.95 plus shipping from B&H Photo Video! The Olympus costs $92.95 plus shipping from B&H photo Video! I said it before and I'll say it again the Oly TCON-17 is the most bang for the buck out there today if you want a quality TCON lens!! If you are willing to use a step down ring then Raynox offers some other lens for mor than the Olympus TCON-17!

Here are a couple and the prices!

The Raynox DCR-1540 Pro a 52mm lens at 1.54X will take the 12X to 18.48X and costs $129.95 from B&H Photo Video.

The Raynox DCR-1850 Pro a 52mm lens at 1.85X will take the 12X to 22.2X and costs $129.95 plus shipping from B&H Photo Video.

You can find these Lens here...

Yes. You need the Kodak lens adapter, Item # 8252355. There are less expensive lens adapters (as on EBay) but, from what I have read, they are not as good.

Do you not have the lens adapter for the W-Con? It is the same adapter.

Got my tCon and wCon yesterday! Horray... of course... I opted for the 58mm adapter a while back so I was forced to go a different route than the tCon17 form Olympus...I ended up with the krt20 from B&HPhoto... 2.0x Kenko TeleConverter... It's raining now, but I definately can't wait to use it!
