• The Olympus TCON-T01 Teleconverter Lens is made to expand the possibilities of shooting with the Tough TG-1, 2 or 3 iHS digital cameras. The teleconverter increases the optical zoom ratio by 6.8x allowing for dramatic close-ups and crisp details without changing the aperture setting.
• In the 35 mm format, this is equivalent to extending the focal length from 100 mm to 170 mm. With the Super-resolution Zoom feature of the TG-X , you can even reach 13.6x magnifications. Like the TG-X cameras, this lens is dustproof and waterproof up to 40 ft (12 m). The CLA-T01 Adapter is sold separately and required to use the TCON-T01 teleconverter lens.
• The Olympus CLA-T01 Conversion Lens Adaptor has been specifically designed for the Tough TG-X iHS digital cameras. With a screw diameter of 45 mm, the adapter enables the easy attachment of the FCON-T01 fisheye converter lens or the TCON-T01 teleconverter lens for expanding your photographic horizons. Its mount also accommodates any 45 mm or 40.5 mm filter to further allow your creativity to flow.

I like how easily this lens fits to the TG-1 camera. The photos I have taken with it so far are great.
The adapter replaces the trim ring on the TG-2 and the fit is very snug. In fact, I have the adapter on the camera permanently and the trim ring is in my old camera parts bin. This allows me to attach the included lens cap for extra protection. It may be overkill since the TG-2 is already rugged but I like having an extra lens cap. The teleconverter screws on adds optical zoom. The camera looks like a DSLR with the TCON-T01 attached but will require a bigger camera case. I like that both the teleconverter and the adapter are sold as a unit.
The lens protector does not stick on one end and the lens does not lock onto the camera. It is a bit heavy- and needs a protective case. But it does add some versitility and zoom range to an excellent camera
