Yes it is possible! You stack them in this way.

1. camera

2. lens adapter

3. UV filter (keep this on all the time to prevent lens damage) I use a Skylight !-A filter on my camera.

4. Polorizer (for outdoor photos)

5. TCON lens!

Hope that helps!

Wow Dawg! Doesn't that make the camera really heavy? And does that UV filter give you any vignetting (at any zoom?)

No vignetting at all for the Skylight filter and polorizer filter together. You get some when the TCON-17 is mounted but only when you run the zoom back about halfway. Otherwise there is none from halfway to the max zoom! Heavy is relative to who you are and what you are used to! I can take shots with this setup one handed..my wife at 4' 10" has some trouble holding it with this setup with two hands! But I'm used to holding a metal bodied Pentax K1000 wirh a 2X, a 3X, multiplier lens and a 80 to 175 zoom lens stacked and we aren't even mentioning the filters!! The Kodak's a featherweight in comparison!

Look at the difference in strap size and you'll get the idea!

Wow, thats a huge camera dawg! Haha. Well I was shooting with a small Pentax DSLR at Costco a few days ago and I found that pretty heavy. Once the camera is more than 2 or 3 pounds I start finding it heavy, especially if I'm out for awhile.

I forget sometimes that not everyone is as large or strong as I am! Please forgive the lapse!
