Default Olympus Camedia 750UZ

I have an Olympus 750 UZ. I don't understand why the lense is moving up and down & left right about a half mm each part. I don't think that is normally!! Please help me!!

This is totally normal for the 750. Suggest you get a lens extension tube to protect it.

I agree. Get the lens tube and a UV filter. It will protect the assembly and give you peace of mind. It also helps you get a better grip on the camera (IMHO).

Look here for a good deal on both the lens tube and filter. Their tube looks better on the camera than the factory offering and costs less as well.

There is a link for Olympus accessories.

I bought 52 mm filters becasue most of my Minolta lenses use 52; 55mm would be fine also.

I agree with COPE. I ordered from the Filter Connection:
- the adapter tube SKU# BOW45652T cost of $11.93
- Hoya 52 mm UV Haze filter SKU HMC52UV cost $13.43
- Snap on lens cap SKU 52SLC cost of $3.63

The SKU is like the catalog number. You can find it on their website at http://www.2filter.com

They look great and protect the lens assembly. Hope this helps!

Just to add since I was away (besides agreeing with everyone else about the floating lens), many people prefer the 52mm diameter tube because it's easier to find filters and other accessories in that size. The Olympus CLA-4 tube is 55mm. I can't say about the C-750, but older C-7x0 cameras had problems with tubes blocking part of the flash if you're in the wide-angle range of the lens...the 750 (and 740) have a redesigned flash that's higher that may not have that problem.

- Check out the Oly_C-700 Yahoo Group, discussions, fun assignments for ALL C-7x0 users (700. 720, 730, 740, 750):

Ah, newbie here :?

Does the lens tube replace the wobbly part, or fit over it, or just what exactly?

I just ordered the 52mm tube and 52mm uv filter from www.2filters.com and the total was less than $25 dollars including shipping. I ordered the 52mm tube for my C4040 and never take it off. It is great insurance for a small price to protect the lens element. It also makes it easier when I want to change filters or add on the telephoto lens from Raynox. I just ordered the C750 and want to thest the Raynox telephoto lens with the 10X optical zoom. I have the Raynox Pro 1850 telephot (1.85 magifier).
