Olympus TCON-30C Tele Conversion Lens

Olympus Press Release: Extend your cameras focal range without compromising aperture

Introducing the Olympus TCON-30C tele conversion lens

Digital camera owners can now significantly enhance their creative shooting options with the new Olympus TCON-30C tele conversion lens. Making a threefold increase in your cameras existing focal range possible the TCON-30C brings distant subjects much closer for spectacularly detailed results. In addition Olympus usual high standard of manufacturing ensures shooting with the TCON-30C doesnt result in any change to your cameras specified aperture values.

Available from January 2005 the TCON-30C will be priced at 169.99 (or 259.99) inc VAT.

With the help of the CLA-7 adapter ring the TCON-30C conversion lens can be simply attached to your camera by bayonet. The regular top focal length of 110mm can be extended to a sensational 330mm (35mm camera equivalent), allowing close-up shots of wildlife or candid portraits. Comprising six all-glass lenses in three groups, it ensures the high optical quality required for first-class digital image capture.

The TCON-30C would be ideally used to treble the telephoto power of the new C-7070 Wide Zoom (which will hit the shelves at the end of February) or indeed the C-5060 Wide Zoom. Finished in classic black and measuring 108mm in length and 75mm in diameter the TCON-30C weighs 200g and also comes with a lens hood.
