Does anyone know if there is an adapter for the C-5060 that will allow you to use the C-750 T-CON17 AND W-CON7? I want to purchase the 5060 but I would really hate to buy all those lenses again.$$$$$$$$. 55mm filters to!!!

This chart should answer all your questions:

It seems you can only use the accessories that end in "C", Tcon-17c, Wcon-07c, with the CLA-7.

I find it odd though as on the Raynox site they list the same lenses availble for both the C-750 and C-5060, with the right tube, so you might be able to get away with the Olympus lenses.

The CLA-7 has a proprietary, bayonet-type, front filter socket and
can't accept the TCON1.7 with its 55mm thread.

Raynox makes a lens adapter for the 5060, the RT5248 that provides a 52mm front filter socket. Thus with this adapter and a 52-to-55 mm step-up ring you should be able to use your TCON1.7 and WCON.7. Whether they will perform as well on the 5060 as they do in the c750 I dont know.

Notice that the above Raynox adapter will also allow you to use the new Raynox 2.2 teleconverter as well as other Raynox lenses.
