Konica lens converter to Olympus

I have a very nice 80-200 telephoto lens that was used on my old Konica Autoreflex TC. What type of converter can I buy so I can use this lens with my new Olympus Evolt E-510? Or is that possible? Thanks for your help.

They're easy to adapt to fit on a 4/3 mount body, but the lens will be totally manual and will not automatically communicate information about which lens aperture is in use to your camera. You will also not have the ability to automatically stop down the aperture when shooting, so you'll need to focus with the aperture ring set to the widest setting (allows in most light to make focussing easier) and then turn the aperture ring down to the correct setting for actual exposure.

In all, it's a bit of a chore, but does allow you to use your lens. Optical quality will not seem as good as you remember, contrast will be lower (unless you mask the rear of the lens to suit the smaller 4/3 sensor) and the lens will have the same angle of view as a long telephoto zoom in the 160-400mm range, so almost all shots will have camera shake unless you use the image stabilisation and/or a tripod. All of that may sound off-putting, but with care and awareness of the limitations of what you propose you'll still be able to achieve very good results. I use a commercially available adapter to use many of my old OM mount lenses on my E-510 with all the same caveats and have been pleased with the results.

If you Google "Konica to 4/3" you'll find further details, but to get you started click here for a link to someone who can supply ready made adapters (I have no personal experience of the supplier), but if you or anyone you know has basic workshop skills you can make them yourself using details available from the search term I suggested.

I hope that my reply has helped you to decide what to do next and would appreciate it if you would take a moment to rate my answer..

What size lens fits a Minolta Maxxum 3xi??


It depends entirely upon what you're after and the type of photography you wish to undertake.

Any Minolta AF mount lens will fit. 28mm is a standard wide angle, 50mm is a standard lens with a field of view approximately the same as the human eye, 80mm is a slight telephoto and for distant subjects 200mm is a long telephoto. Some lenses combine a few into one, they're called zoom lenses and will typically be something like 35-70mm, or 70-200mm. The measurements relate to the focal length of the lens, but generally the larger the number the longer the lens sticks out at the front. Zoom lenses are bulkier and heavier than fixed focal length lenses, but they're also the most commonly used types these days.

Blurry pictuers


First of all, tele-multipliers or tele-converters do not have the greatest optics in the world, and are usually fine for close up images but not much else. Secondly, they do restrict the amount of light coming into the camera which could interfere with the internal metering. Third, you have additional lens surfaces to get dirty. To fix the problem, start with the easy one, and clean all lens surfaces meticulously with a soft lint free cloth. If that doesn't fix it, try shooting non-moving objects in brightly lit areas. If you are still getting blurry pictures, try using the tele-converter on a close-up image within the focal length of the lens combination. If that doesn't work, give the teleconverter to someone you don't like and go buy a good quality 50-135mm zoom lens. Vivitar, Sigma, or other similar lenses are good quality and are very reasonably priced.

Using the lens


As long as the lens mount is compatible with the Olympus e410, you can use this lens.

It will only be limited by what features are supported through the camera body - I suspect that you will have to do everything manually.

Good luck.

C-770 lens


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.

Telephoto lens for digital camera


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: C-2000/2020/2040/3000/3020/3030/3040/4000/4040/5050 Zoom ....... 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).
