TCON17X teleconverter for XZ-1 first impressions + Pics
Jun 7, 2012

I received not too long ago my TCON17X teleconverter from B&H ($200 for the teleconverter and $30 or the CLA adapter ring). The construction of the lens is amazing as always with Olympus.

Once the converter is attached to the ring and to the camera, it makes a pretty big camera aferwards as you can see here:

But the bulk of the weight is then in the less, so you end up hold your whole system by the plastic grip on the lens. Very easy and safe this way.

This series of pictures shows the same outdoor scene at max zoom without converter (112mm) then with converter at wide angle, at approximately mid zoom and at max zoom (1.7x112 = 190mm).
