View Full Version : A40 - Accessory lenses?

08-21-2004, 02:12 PM
Hello from a new member here!

I have an A40 (Heavens! how out of date - it's nearly two years old! ;) ). I'm hankering for a long zoom camera, like an S1 IS, but don't really have the cash to spare at the moment. Does anyone have experience with an add-on tele lens on an A40 (or 60, etc)? Genuine Canon, or a third party lens? There are several brands besides Canon for sale on e-bay, at 2X, 2.5X or 3X magnification (the Canon is 2.4X). Is the Canon lens fast enough to take advantage of the teleconverter in anything but full sunlight, or would I be doomed to camera shake and noisy images? Is image degradation likely to be noticeable in a 2 megapixel 6 x 4 print?

Lots of questions, I know. Thanks for bearing with me!
