hey ultra
i was adviced to stay away from the big zooms 2x and 3x as they may not be compatable ....
in fact the 1.5 to 1.7 give sharper and clearer images.
you will also need to read your user manual and do the math.... mm range ....
try reposting this question in the sony forum, you will probably get more responses there, as everyone there is a sony user and you will surely find someone who is using the same camera with compatable lenses.
good luck
pete
