Other brands?
 
Hello there, I want to ask if there are other brands except Olympus that have lenses and accessories for the Olympus digitals and especially for the c730. I'm interested mainly for lenses. Thanks

There's third-party teleconverters, wideangle-converters, closeup & macro converters, not to mention many types of filters, etc. These are all available lenses that screw on to the camera with the aid of a filter tube adapter. The main thing to worry about is the thread diameter of the converter you want to get (if it works with the tube adapter diameter you get or if you need a step-up/down adapter).

Note that you can NOT attach lenses directly to the C-730 lens...you NEED a filter tube adapter which screws into the body of the camera (45.6mm to be exact). There are various sizes from 37mm (vignetting alert) to 55mm.

As in everything else there's good and bad...some lenses will have a vignetting problem with the camera (a black circle around your pictures due to the diameter being too small for the camera) and other lenses will be soft (not great quality, or incompatible with the camera).
