Hi Grudzilla - you may want to look at the site of www.photosolve.com. Lots of add-on goodies! I also use Ebay as a resource to find what is available on the market.

Good luck!

I have the DX6490 also
I wanted more Zoom
I have a 2X Tokina made for Video ( replaceing it )
I have a 3.5X ProSpec ( it's just soso )
and I have a Tokina 5.5X Super VC manual focus

the bigest problems you will incounter are
brightness ( usally darker ) use EV to correct
and Chromatic Abberation a blueish to purple outline

you will have to use a higher EV with the addons
and movement is pronoced

dont get the 37mm that everyone says is Kodak
37mm causes virgetting ( black or dark ring on outer edges )
if you dont zoom out over half way
you want at least 46mm or better
you will still get some virgetting if you dont zoom out a little
I have ordered a 52mm addon 2X
will let you know how it goes
