Default Sony dsc f828 add-on lenses

:? I see that EBay is selling this camera with add-on 2x tele and wide angle lenses. I've read at other sites you can't add on lenses due to possible damage to the zoom. Can you clarify whether or not you can use these lenses safely?

First, even if you could use that lens safely(which you can not, according to sony), the cheap lenses thrown in on package deals are almost always designed for video cameras/camcorders - which operate at much lower resoluiton then a still camera. They will soften the images considerably, and make CA/fringing problems rise to unaccpetable levels.
