Default more zoom please

Is there anyway to add more telephoto zoom to my C-5050Z? The 3X optical it comes with is fine and I have the 1.45X olympus telephoto lens too. I just want something with more zoom, it's annoying at times not to have 6x-8x. sigh.

There are cheaper alternatives (Tiffen etc) and I'm sure someone will point you in the right direction.

there are other alternatives out there, but you will compromise the image quality with anything more than 2X. I use a tiffen 2X and the image is good but not to olympus standards. A longer tele end would have been good, but it would also mean a slower lens. I personaly preffer the f1.8.
One advice though: stay away from the raynox lenses; i have used their tele, and you dont want to.

steve6, you can order that for USA? It looks like the prices are in pounds or what not. The 10X lens looks nice!

They deal with the whole world including USA.

I don't know how it works - send an email.

I spotted this on the left.
Great USD$ exchange rates mean even LOWER PRICES for USA clients. All prices are displayed in GBP.

When you order it will present you with a box giving and $ - take your pick.

Don't forget all the adaptors you need too.

If you go here you'll be given the option for UK and Europe or rest of world including USA.

It's good, very good but expensive at $216 but worth it.

Plus all the other stuff you need.
