Default 717 zoom

Some 717 owners might want to look at the Sony 1.7 telephoto lens VCL-HGD1758. I am finding that it is an excellent lens and increases the optical zoom from 5 to 8.5 and while it is VERY heavy, approximately doubling the weight of the camera, I find that it is easier to hold the camera on target. Myself, I like the Sony digital zoom (yeah I know you can use Photoshop....) and get 17x plus you can see to put the spot focus right on target.
