    The C-700 series uses an extention tube much like the C-3000 series uses.
    It's a CLA-4 instead of a CLA-1, if memory serves.

    Correct. The end of the lens has no filter thread. You use an extension
    tube which has a filter thread on the end. When you attach the extension
    tube with the filter on the end it forms a 'tunnel' for the lens to extend
    and retract in. I don't know of any Olympus cameras that have threads on
    the end of retractable lenses.

  6. Mike,

    thanks for the info. It seems that this design is popular among
    digital camera makers. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1 with its 12x
    zoom also has such a tube with a filter thread.
