Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Aimed at existing owners of the Olympus XZ-1 premium compact camera, the creatively versatile Olympus TCON-17x tele conversion lens increases the existing focal length by a factor of 1.7x but without changing the acclaimed camera's bright aperture.

Connection is quick and easy via the bayonet mount. Simply set the XZ-1 to its maximum telephoto length, fit the conversion lens and start shooting straightaway.

Specially designed for the acclaimed XZ-1, and with a complimentary sophisticated black finish, the TCON-17x tele conversion lens increases the telephoto reach of the camera up to an equivalent of 190mm in 35mm film terms, whilst maintaining the incredibly large aperture of f/2.5.

This ensures that XZ-1 users can still enjoy the camera's lens'; delivery of high brightness even when pulling faraway objects closer. Nearest focusing distance is three metres.

With a screw diameter of 55mm, dimensions of a more than manageable 80.9x77.5mm and weight of 280g, the Olympus TCON-17x Tele Converter is constructed with a configuration of five lenses in three groups providing an angle of view of 13°.

Please note that use of the TCON-17x tele conversion lens requires a special conversion lens adapter: in the case of the XZ-1 this is the CLA-12.

Additional Olympus cameras that the TCON-17x tele conversion lens is compatible with include existing Ultra Zoom models in the SP-500 UZ, SP-510 UZ, SP-550 UZ, SP-560 UZ, SP-565 UZ, SP-570 UZ, SP-590UZ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Quality Lens 27 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a top quality lens from Olympus for use with compact camera Olympus XZ-1. It attaches to the CL-12 Conversion lens adapter, which I purchased at the same time. The addition of this complete unit gives the XZ-1 great scope for any situation!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great TC 11 July 2014
Verified Purchase
This is a nice tc which is smaller than it looks on the web. Very versatile. I have used it with Olympus Stylus 1 with the CLA-13 adapter and it has produced some nice photos of distant objects. Some points:
1) Always remember to engage the tcon17 function in camera menu 2 in stylus 1. This will ensure
a)that your EXIF data is correct
b)that your camera starts up at full tele zoom
c)that better IS is applied.
2) Even though the object may be moving in your LCD frame, just take the shot, the IS does a great job and you'll get more sharp photos than you thought possible.
3) Hold the lens in a tight and comfortable manner.
4) At full zoom, quick moving objects like small birds will still give you trouble. Try continuous shooting.

Overall, I'm happy I made this purchase-it doesn't come cheap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to the Stylus 1 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase
Works a treat. Maintains high quality optics in a really compact package. Thick glass lens makes it a little weighty but less so than equivalent zoom lenses. Mine fitted to a Stylus 1. Would highly recommend.
