    Kowa TSN-1 Hi , I also use the Opticron HDF zoom on my TS-613 . It's a great combination and the lenses often come up for sale on a well known auction site . I don't think you'll be disappointed. Kind regards, Graham

    kowa tsn2 help...

    I've got the TSN 20XWA, 30XWA and 20-40 zoom . In my opinion the 30XWA is the best allround lense . Secondhand on ebay you're looking at £80-110 for a 30XWA as they're still very much in demand.
