Hi, on Ebay there is a 3X zoom add-on lens by Digital Concepts. Didn't know if any of you had any past experiences with Digital Concepts lenses. Here's the link to check it out.

Thanks, Matt

In general there is NO single 3x auto tele converter with even acceptable outcome from third-party manufacturers. The only 2 I knew of with decent quality is Nikon's TC-E3ED and TC-E3PF. The former only works well at full 3x zoom with my previous A80. With the bigger front pupil of A610 the usefulness is doubted. The latter is far more expensive than an A610/A620 I don't think you will consider. Olympus also made a giant 3x tele converter TCON-300s for their E10/E20 cameras but this requires re-focussing work on the tele converter itself so is not "auto".

In case you are interested in something not as expensive as Raynox 2200 but with decent zoom power more than mere 1.7x youare welcome tocheck out my experience with CrystalVue SHD-20 in another thread:
