I strayed into a camera shop looking for postcards in Chinatown, S.F. Clerk noticed my Olympus C-7000 and asked me if I knew that there were add-on lenses for telephoto and wide angle. Novice that I am, he talked his way down from $395 to $200. We didn't buy it, but wonder about this "magic magnetic circle" that he showed us first on a video cam and then on my camera. It had ultra sharp clarity right down to his eyeball which he displayed on his video monitor. Pointed it inside the little box the lense came out of. Without added light, we could see the fine details INSIDE the box. Remember, now, I'm a novice, so am easily impressed. My husband thought he saw MP Power on the box. Any such brand? We can't find that brandon the internet sites.

I'm aware of a company called Crystal Vision that produces "M-Power" add-on lenses for consumer-grade digicams that don't have add-on lens capability out of the box. There's nothing special about the "magic magnetic circle," it's just a magnetic ring with adhesive on one side - you stick it onto the camera, then the lense's edge attaches to the magnetic ring. I don't think there's anything special about the lenses themselves, either; they're just plain ol' telephoto and wide-angle. I've never used one, so I couldn't speak for the quality, but I think they should be a lot cheaper than $200 from what I've seen (assuming this is what the guy showed you).
