    I have a Dimage Z3, but I need some a advices:
    - Is it a good idea to buy a filter (what kind?, what brand)
    - I've read about some telephoto converter (2x, 3x, etc), are they good?,
    work?
    - I would like to use a wide angle lens to take some landscape, do you
    think it's a good idea?

    Thank for your cooperation

  2. What do you want filters for - i.e. what kind of filtering do you want to
    do? A polarising filter to darken skies might be helpful.

    Personally, I find add-on converters inconvenient, so I can't comment on
    general quality. I did get a Nikon converter once for my Coolpix 990 and
    the quality was excellent. It may be a good idea to stick with the
    manufacturer's own brand. My view is that it's better to get a camera
    with the zoom range you need rather than messing with add-on converters,
    if that's possible.

    Why not use your existing lens for wide-angle, and make the landscape by
    joining images together? This program does it automatically:
