TC-DC58A one at brand new one price 250 bucks which I dont think relaly deserves it;and another with fungus inside the lens at 40 USD.

My question even if I found one of those I will definitly ned an adaptor, right? I can see all of them are 58 mm none of them fit at 49 mm, right?

 

If yopu have any suggestion for sourcing this items for internet purchasing I will really appreciate

 

many tks un advance

hi there,

 

this topic looks pretty interesting to me as I like experimenting with my x100 ;)

 

Just found a different Sony VCL Tele Conversion Lens X1.5, but it has a 46 mm screw. Would it be a problem to use a 'normal' 49mm->46mm adapter or is there a special reason why just 58mm Tele-Lens discussed here?

 

...thanks.

It has to do with the rear pupil diameter of the conversion lenses.  The physically smaller lenses have smaller pupils and will lead to severe vignetting.

 

The initial list and additional lenses added were based off of the readings and recommendations made in the very first post. However, in some cases like the TCON, vignetting was experienced.  Safe bet - stick to the lenses that were reviewed here unless you want to experiment.
