Default Interested in getting Tiffen 2x telephoto lens for C-4000?

I've put up a web gallery that shows how the Tiffen MegaPlus 2x telephoto lens attaches to the Olympus C-4000, as well as some sample images from the setup. If you are interested in getting the Tiffen lens to extend your optical zoom to 6x, you might find the pictures worthwhile. I had a hard time trying to make sure that the C-4000 would work with the Tiffen lens (the Tiffen website doesn't list it as being supported), and thanks to the helpful people here, on RPD, and elsewhere, finally got the answers.

I thought seeing a graphical demonstration of the setup would be helpful to those who (like me) have a hard time visualizing it.

The link is:

Thanks,

Hyun Yu

It should work just fine, since both the 4040 and the 5050 have 41mm thread on the lens housing.

I have a 5050 and use the 2X megaplus on it. It works fine.
