im looking for some feedback and also info about additional lenses one can buy. What is available and what are the most common ones that people acquire first. Im assuming wide angle possibly?

Thanks
Jason.

A nice little selection to start with.
WIth the lenses, it all depends on what you need. The Kodak x0.7 Wide angle lens comes in useful at car shows and where space is tight, but you can forget using the onboard flash even having the just the adapter in place.
If you want more zoom, a lot of us use an Olympus TCON-17 which screws straight on the adapter and will give you the equivelent of 646mm in 35mm speak.


A W/A sample.

thankyou paul for your help. I will go with the olympic lens that you mentioned. I seem to be a zoom fanatic.

Fantastic pictures, man. Glad to know that we can take such pics with this camera. I need to play catch-up and get a clue with regards to how to actually TAKE such pics.
