I recently purchased a Konica Minolta Z6. I love the 12x zoom, but sometimes I still want alittle more. I've never bought an add on before and I'm not sure about a lot of things. I was kinda told before not to use the digital zoom, because it would just screw up the picture. So I thought it might be better to get a bigger zoom instead of using the digital zoom. I don't even know what will fit on the camera. Will I need an adapter since the zoom is internal? What is a good lower priced lens?

I want to be able to take pics from far away and be able to crop them and stillhave them sharp. What do I need to do???

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :-)

I have a z6 too. If you buy a conversion lens adapter (like but not restricted to Sakar [Digital Concepts] JA- Z3-52 ) then you will be able to use all accessories for 52 mm lenses like filters, wide angle lenses and telephoto lenses on your camera. A good place to look for is

Although this store is more readily accessible through the Amazon and Ebay!

You might want to buy it from Amazone following this link:

Good luck

p.s. About the digital zoom you're right, it just adds the grains to the shots (I was wondering what's is the point of having digital zoom anyways?!!).
