First - just purchased a 70-300mm telephoto lens for my E300 digital Olympus. Can I use that lens with my camera?
second - ever since I tried to use the new lens I am having trouble turning on the camera. Battery seem to be having trouble keeping its contact with the camera body. If I switch it to the old lens the camera still won't turn on until I take out the battery and re-insert it or hold it down before closing over the door. Is it the new lens or is there a problem with the camera?

The lens isn't supposed to be removable. With the CLA-11 Adapter Tube you can add an additional lens to the camera, such as close-up, wide-angle, or telephoto. However, these attachments go in front of the lens that is already on the camera.
Hey john42hockey, The lens on this camera is not removable. What you need to attach the telephoto lens to your camera is to get a 43-55mm Step-Up Ring, and a CLA-1 lens adapter tube. You should first attach the lens adapter tube to the camera, and then screw the step up ring into the tube and then screw the telephoto lens into step up ring. I have included a link to the manufacturer where you can purchase both the step up ring, and the lens adapter tube incase you need these. I hope this helps! https://emporium.olympus.com/innards/empProdDetails.asp?sku=200558-410 Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
When I hook my e300 to the computer it won’t show on the desktop. The cameras on but it’s stuck on “one moment please. All
8 of my other digitals from Olympus work fine. What’s going on here? It’s all turned on but it won’t show up. Thank you.
if you go to the olympusamerica.com/store you will see the telephoto lens but you will need the cla-10 adapter to use it with your camera
although you do get more telephoto with it... you can turn the digital zoom on in the camera and go to 90+ times zoom
You must have the lens extended all the way or you get a halo effect as if your taking the picture through a tube. This might be interesting in some instances. I have the 1.4x for my 2000z and it works very well although it is a little cumbersome.
"While the C-765UZ's lens is not stabilized, the relatively fast F3.7 aperture at full telephoto will help minimize the effects of camera shake and allow for overall good results. We recommend the use of either a monopod or tripod whenever using the telephoto capabilities of a camera."
If you are talking about converter lenses (telephoto and wide angle), there are a few that will fit the Olympus C-770.
You will have to use the Raynox adapter tube instead of the Olympus CLA-4 tube.
There are probable others, but I could not find them.
Interestingly, the Olympus TCON-17 and WCON-07 lenses are very popular and adapted to other brand of cameras.
It will not work because it is the wrong thread size.
Here is info on the Olympus TCON-17 lens for the 5050:
TCON-17 (1.7X) Telephoto Conversion Lens
Extend the capabilities of your digital camera with the TCON-17 Telephoto Converter lens. This telephoto lens will increase the magnification of your subject by 1.7x when your camera lens is set to the telephoto position. This will help you bring in the subject when you can't get closer, for example, shooting sports or concerts. Please see below for additional items required to attach this lens to your camera.
The following models require the CLA-1 and 43-55mm Step-Up Ring:
The video lens is too small (diameter). If you found one with a 43mm thread and put it on the 5050, you would experience severe vignetting (clipping of the corners of the photo).
