    I want to use this teleconverter on my SEL55210 (49mm thread)
    Would I be able to use the Nikon TC-E15ED with my lens (with the appropriate step down ring)? Or is this teleconverter proprietary for CoolPix cameras.

    According to that page, it wouldn't be compatible
    According to a professional, it will work with the appropriate step-down ring
    I'll trust the latter

    Now, a 49mm-50mm step up ring seems very difficult to find :mad:

    Completely agree with Mokhan. It wouldn't be compatible with the normal lenses. You should try something else.

    Can one handhold this and other auxiliary lenses up against the lens of a point and shoot? I was thinking of trying a wide angle aux lens on my canon powershot a590is (35-140mm). Now if I can find one at a thrift store and try before buying on the cheap that would be nice.

    I'd imagine it would work, as long as the diameter of the auxiliary lens is greater than the diameter of your point and shoot's lens (otherwise you'll get heavy vignetting).

    Smacks head. I just remembered and looked it up in the camera's manual. Canon does make aux lenses for such instances. Of course I was thinking of using cheaper aux lenses and just hand holding them.

    not that that would necessarily be a bad thing

    Haha, well, by heavy vignetting I mean literally a full black circle around your composition. It turns out pretty bad!
