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.
