The B-300 is made by Olympus. it was replaced by the TCON 17, but they look identical.

Folks have claimed they are identical. I read where the anti-reflective lens coating may differ.

I don't believe they are still in production. The B-300 shows up on ebay quite often for $60-$80 or so. The TCON 17 is a touch more. Be very carefull if you are looking at a TCON-17 as the ones with the letter suffix do not work with our cameras. (i.e. 17C or 17X)

They are very similar to the Panasonic DMW-LT55. You need the respective adapter tube to mount it on the FZ150 or FZ200
