The built-in lens "all-in-one" designed to be digital, which means it is specifically matched to the CCD. Cameras offering interchangeable lenses are designed for 35mm film, which usually does not have sufficient resolution for a Megapixel CCD sensor. When interchangeable lenses are removed from the body, the CCD and internal mechanisms are exposed to dust in the environment. Contaminants are a much bigger problem on digital cameras since the CCD is much smaller that a 35mm film plane. One of the primary reasons for using interchangeable lenses is for a wide variety of focal lengths. The E-20N contains a 4x optical zoom 9mm-36mm (35mm-140mm equivalent in 35mm photography) built-in lens. In addition, there are wide angle, telephoto and macro add-on lenses. Some interchangeable lenses cost as much as the E-20 camera itself. Other lenses that were originally designed for film cameras do not deliver same focal length on a film camera as a digital camera. For example, a wide-angle 28mm lens attached to a digital camera would only provide 56mm equivalence. This system offers great flexibility and will suit approximately 95% of most shooting needs.

The nikon l810 suoort change of the lenses


The Nikon L810 does not have interchangeable lenses. You can buy accessory lenses to fit on the front of the camera's built-in lens, but you cannot remove the lens itself.

My focus will not work on my tamron aspherical 18-200mm


Hi Missy - certain Nikon bodies lack the built in auto focus motor as a way to hold costs down and make them affordable. The problem is that any lens purchased for these bodies will need to include the motor - and adds the expense to the lens. Instead of paying for the motor once in the body, the owner will need to buy it in every lens purchased for that body. As of this writing, the Nikon bodies that lack an AF motor are: D5100, D5000, D3100, D3000, D60, D40X, D40.

When selecting a lens for one of the cameras listed above, you must choose the model for a Nikon that needs the AF motor built into the lens. Tamron sells lenses for these camera bodies and states they have "BIM" or "built in AF motor" and similar. In any case, regardless of lens manufacturer, you must purchases lenses that have the AF motor built into the lens, otherwise it will not be able to auto focus. Here is a site with a list of all lenses known to to have the AF motor built into the lens.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Sync switching voltage


No, the E-10/20N has a built in filter that protects the camera from high switching voltage.

Filters


Yes, the Olympus E-20N has a 62mm filter thread size. You can attach a standard 62mm lens filter directly on the lens. Color filters would not have an effect on the camera due to the auto white balance.

WCON


The built-in flash cannot be used with the WCON-08B. The WCON-08B blocks the path of light from the built-in flash. An external flash should be used, for example, the FL-40 sits much higher, therefore the path of light is not blocked by the extension lens.

Macro mode


The lens shade is blocking light from the built-in flash, remove the lens shade.

Lenses


No, the wide angle and telephoto extension lenses are specifically designed only to extend the focal length of the existing E-10/20N lens. Their specific purpose is to be a fixed focal length.
