    Question larger lenses on my olympus

    i am new to all the details of photograpgy and lenses though i have been taking photos since i can remember.

    my current camera is an olympus sp350

    i am wanting to learn about lens sizes and what difference a larger e.g. 52mm (with step up) lens would make over the standard 37mm lens i could fit only using the one adapter tube.

    also i want to know which lenses you might reccomend for my olympus sp350 (37mm thread standard)

    please help me! jet

    Jet, I believe you have come to the wrong place. The Olympus SP350 is a digital compact camera, it doesn't have interchangeable lenses. There are "addon" lenses you can attach to the filter threads to give wider or nrrower angle of view, though.

    In this forum we discuss large format cameras, which for the most part use single-sheet films of 4x5 inches or larger.

    You might try the following photo.net forum. You will probably get more response there. People on this forum deal with a much different type of equipment, at the opposite end of the size spectrum.
