(Adapted from my review on the TG-2)
I consider this lens a bit overpriced, considering that you also need a $20 adapter, which should have been built into the lens instead of the 40.5mm threads. Regardless it is small, high quality glass, and has another set of 40.5mm threads on the front for filters. I have had very satisfying results with the teleconverter, which should be most useful for shots taken from a fixed location (sports, performance, cruise) but is of course not as useful as a normal zoom lens. Because of the heavy lens vignette, the camera must use it's maximum optical zoom (4x). Thus any further zooming uses digital zoom only. Minimum zoom shots are 100% equivalent quality to the best non-teleconverter shots, but at higher magnification. From that point, further digital zoom still looks nice, but naturally collects noise. If you want a variety of shot composition options, you will have to quickly take the teleconverter off, and switch the camera mode back to normal. This is easy and quick, but not seamless, about 5 seconds.

When using this lens you must go under menu#2/accessory settings then turn on conversion lens. This will get rid of the black ring, tube people are talking about.

For as much as I paid for it, it doesn't do what I thought it would. Although, I think I knew this buying it since I like to research before purchasing certain (technological-type) items. So, this is totally at the fault of the user. Lol. I am sure it would work nicely for "close" distance. Hahaha. I know, oxymoron. But, it doesn't make too much of a difference and it doesn't make the picture any more clear/crisp. But, if you do want a little more zoom then you should spend the money and get it. Just do not expect professional-type zooming. I wanted to use this for my niece's gymnastics competitions. They are often far away from where you are sitting in the bleachers or seats. But, oh well. I have yet to try macro with it so maybe that is better for extra zooming? I would just put it on "P" and you can zoom so much. Either way you lose clarity. So, I would save your $110 or whatever it was.

If you use less than near max zoom the window is smaller than full view. It useful only for far away objects.

I have never had a camera lens that at the least amount of telephoto gave me the feeling I was shooting through a pipe. Literally your photos look like they were taken through a tube. It is not until you have about 4x power that you get a full picture. The result is you get only about 1/2 the usefulness of the lens. The full power of the telephoto is better then full power of the camera, but by a little bit more. I think you could take regular photos and then magnify them and crop them to get the same results. I am hoping to take the camera and telephoto traveling and hope it can prove its usefulness. Right now I am very disappointed.

It doesn't make that much of a difference for the investment. I went snorkeling with it and was very limiting. To avoid the pinhole look you need to zoom in significantly, so you are stuck trying to take pictures up close only. The camera has a decent macro feature that let's you take pictures up close and almost the same zoom capacity without this over expensive lens anyways. Plus you'll be able to take wider pictures as well. Note that you can't remove the lens in the water.

It helps you zoom in slightly more than what the camera limit is. You must have the camera zoomed in all the way to use this product or you will have a black "O" outline on your pictures. The material is good and does what it says but i think its a little expensive and UNNECESSARY.

I LOVE the camera, but this zoom does not zoom enough and has to be zoomed out to avoid a pin hole look. I probably would not buy it again. The camera itself is awesome and I love playing with the "magic" setting.
