Default A70 telephoto ???

hi,
i am looking forware to get additional telephoto lenses. Is anyone out there have any photos example on telephoto compared to normal 1? Is it improvement in zooms when the telephoto lenses is attached on my A70? I mean the telephoto is 2.4X while the normal optical zoom on A70 is 3X, therefore 3 + 2.4 = 5.4X optical zoom?

thankx

actually, i'm pretty sure you multiply the zooms together, so 3x * 2.4x= 7.2x

The first 2 photos of the following are good examples of what you are looking for:

It is multiplies 3x times 2.4 to get your results not adding them together.
