Can anyone recommend a decent add-on wide angle and teleconverter lens for the Dimage Z5? I don't want to spend a fortune and am willing to sacrifice a little bit of quality for price. I realize the consensus is to stay away from Sakar (Digital Optics/Crystal Optics), Titanium, and Opteka.

Any ideas/thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Tokina seem to be ok
and I should have one I ordered tomarrow or Sat.
will let you know the brand and if it's any good or not

also Kenko seem to have a good rep
but Toknia and Kenko have make mainly Video Conters
it's just that some of them have been rated ok for Digital Cameras
even their older video conveters are better than some of the newer so called
Digital Camera conveters or High Def or Professional lenes like Merkury ....
