I want to get closer shots of wildlife. I am wondering if anyone with the s5000 has had any luck with tele lenses. I am interested in the raynox 2.2 and the crystalvue 8x32 but, Any recomendations would be appreciated.

You might look at http://www.b-300.com/Stacking-1.html. I have found most add ons degrade image quality to some extent. The few that are considered good for your camera can be searched for on

This is a good place to search for a particular lens you are looking at, and getting other user opinons.

Good Luck

Yeah, ya' have to be careful because they can degrade the picture a lot if they aren't a high quality lens. I have a Sony lens that worked great on my old Mavica Fd91, but that camera is not quite a megapixel resolution. When I use it on the S5000, it really degrades the corners of the photo a lot. Another thing to remember is that you are zoomed out so far that even on a tripod, if it's windy, you can get a blurred shot because of the zoom amount. It can be cool for some effects, though, having the corners vignetted like that.

The problem is that most of the aftermarket add-on zoom extenders are made for camcorders which have less resolution than a digicam. If you buy one, you'll be better off to save a bit more and buy a little bit more expensive one to get better quality.
