Is there an attacheable zoom lens for LX3?
Hi. I have a Panasonic LX3 and I want to know if there are zoom lens that I can attach to this when I need to take pics that may be far. For instance, when my kid is on a school program and because it has a short zoom I can't take good pics. I seem to remember that with LX3, it is possible to change lens although I'm not exactly sure how or what kind is possible. It wasn't a need before when my kid was just a baby, but now it seems there is a need on certain situations. Anyway, does anyone know what is the longest zoom that LX3 can have and if possible the name of this lens.

Several years ago -yes- there were some clip-on lens attachments for both Panny & Canons when most cameras were of a 3x or 5x zoom lens only. These attachments used to cost about $200

I would suggest it would be cheaper in the long run to update your camera to a 10x - 15x camera and give the current one to someone else
