Default olympus 700 uz photos and a ?

I have taken a ton of photos using the olympus 700uz to see them check out http://www.seclusion.org/ I have purchased the 1.4 telephoto and the wide angle macro from ebay and for the price was very happy with them. I cant find really anything else that goes beyond a 2x telephoto for this camera does anyone have ideas or thoughts on where I can find a large telephoto lens?

Check out http://jimsphotopage.com/UZI/index.html

It's a Sigma VT5 5X teleconverter (shown on a C-2100UZ, which has the same focal length as the C-700UZ). This will give you up to 1900mm.

Should be able to use the same teleconverters on either camera. The problem is diameter of the filter tubes, the CLA-1 for the C-2100 is 43mm, while the CLA-4 for the C-700 is 55mm. You can use a step up/down ring but in some cases you will get vignetting.

What tube and possible step up/down ring you get depends on what the diameter of the teleconverter is (you can get third party filter tubes that are 52mm, 46mm, and 37mm (vignetting alert).

I have to say though I have no personal experience with teleconverters...my info is based on what others have said. You should check out the Oly_C-700 Yahoo group, http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Oly_C-700/ because I know there are a few people there who have added teleconverters to their C-700.
