Olympus has officially launched the much-anticipated TCON-17X 1.7x teleconverter and CLA-12 adapter ring for the Olympus XZ-1 premium compact camera. Featuring a 28-112mm (eq.) f/1.8-2.5 lens and a 10-megapixel, 1/1.63” sensor, the Olympus XZ-1 is an award-winning “prosumer” digicam that has received many accolades since its launch earlier this year. The new TCON-17X add-on tele-conversion lens lets you get 1.7 times closer with a 1:2.5 f-number, meaning that with the lens set to maximum telephoto, you get a 35mm equivalent reach of 190mm without any loss of brightness. The TCON-17X teleconverter is available for £149.99 and the (required) CLA-12 adapter for £39.99. In addition to making it possible to mount the TCON-17X, the CLA-12 also allows users to attach a 55mm filter.
