The Olympus Tcon 17 has a 55mm thread, might just do the job. It is a good lens, works on a lot of cameras.

Thank you,,Appreciate the feedback,,although i might be a little nervous on trying the 52 to a 58 mm,,and screwing up the threads..so will probably stick to the 58 mm,,but not sure if a telephoto or a wide angle is the more popular????

What do you want to do? I chase birds, long range is vital. If you are into landscape or urban scenes, wide angle may be your thing. What is "popular" with you? If the lens is compatible with your camera optics a 3mm thread difference is simple to handle with a ring. You need to do some research, look for people who have tried the combination. More than likely, someone on this forum will know, just got to find them.

This pic is with th TCon 17 on my Panasonic FZ30, at 5mp, 909mm equivalent'

I'm not a Sony user, ask on the various Sony forums and you will get an answer for your camera.
