I know Canon makes a 2.2x... but I'm not sure of the price, or if it would work on a P850. The olympus seems to be the most common, I'd stick with that! And don't forget to let me know how the shipping works to Canada. (You ordered from BhPhoto, right?)

Where in Canada are you? If this works well for you, then I'll probably buy one too!:lol:

The Kodak TCON comes the closest and it is about $20 or so dollars US more expensive than the Olympus TCON! People please listen... For several years now we have been looking at different lens and the quality and cost have been paramount in our search! Nothing so far matches the Olympus TCON 17 better in price or quality for these Kodak digital cameras!! The Kodak TCON will work better for the P880 but it is not a high zoom camera to start with! For a high Zoom Kodak camera get the TCON and buy it from a good dealer that is in the buisness of satisfying customers and not ripping them off! We've looked and looked and Really bhphotovideo is one of the very best places to buy! Adorama is probably no. 2. They deal with photographers and have done so for many..many years and have proven themselves to be reliable and easy to deal with! We don't work for these companies but we have used them over and over and over and had very good results!

Go here for the Kodak TCON 1.4 lens....
