Well, my friennd is thinking about getting a Kodak Z740 for his birthday. But, he wants to know if it can have add on lenses and filters and all that jazz.

Does the Z740 have 55mm threads on the lens? Kodak doesn't have an adapter for it, but recommends the 1.4x telephoto lens for it. So, does that mean the Z740 has 55mm threads right on the lens? For filters and lenses, etc.?

Cheers.

The Z740 comes with a lens adapter to allow it to use 55mm lenses and filters.

My daughter's Z740 and adapter can and sometimes does use all my filters and lens! All 55mm too!

Very neat. I have the same Z740 camera and have been intrested in different lenses. When looking at the kodak web site. their was just two lenses listed...Would any 55mm lens fit this camera?

Thanks

Should fit but you should know a lens will work with your camera before buying. Do you have some particular lens in mind?

Thank you for your kind reply. As yet, i have no particular lens in mind. As a newbie, i am just learning and will be asking lots of questions, such as what sort of lens is best for a particular job. One of my main intrests is night photography, especially trying to get shots of the moon.

I also posted a photo taken with this lens and my DX6490 which is very simular to your Z740!
