    I bought this camera recently. A little gem. Since I like to photograph
    birds, I am now thinking of buying Sony's tele-lens converter 2.6X, which,
    Sony claims, is of high quality. I am not talking about taking shots at very
    long distances, but rather back yard photography, capturing birds close-up
    from my deck, window etc. My current 3X optical setting (I don't use the
    digital zoom feature, which is not adequate) is just not strong enough to
    get that close enough shot. I know I have to first get the adapter which
    allows the
    tele-lens, filters etc to be attached. Does anyone out there have the same
    camera, and possibly experience with this lens ? Thanks,

    I am doubtful if you could achieve this way. Just try. I did the same
    and did not succeed last year in Australia. Then I misused my Sony TRD
    30 movie camera with only 1.5 Mpix in still photographs, but with an
    extraordinary telephoto lens and an antishake device. That worked
    perfect. I increased the number of pixels with Photoshop and did some
    sharpening. The 8x11 prints are fine.
