Olympus 5050/CLA-1 lens adapter/steppng rings & thread converter
"I hope it goes without saying that I really enjoy having the OpticZoom lens as a tool in my camera bag to get pictures that I could not get otherwise. Being new to high end photography it was a cost effective way to "run with the big dogs" as it were. These pictures were taken with my Olympus C-5050 on a gloomy March afternoon shortly before sundown. Nowhere near ideal conditions. But, I think they are pretty reveling. The first is with no magnification. I did this to show how far I was away from the USS Yorktown. It is now a museum in Charleston South Carolina where I was visiting for work. The second is of course with the OpticZoom and the 3x of the camera. (a total of 15x) I think this showcases the OpticZoom lens pretty well."

Canon G1/Lensmate/adapter rings
"Even with some vignetting at f2.5 the OpticZoom enabled this lunar eclipse sequence on my Canon G1. It was chosen as Photo of the Day for May 17, 2003 on steves-digicam.com! Even though the OpticZoom isn't a perfect match for the G1 it made this photo possible. Nothing else in its price range would have come close"
