New Sony F717 Owner Needs advice

Newbie here and a proud owner of a Sony F717. I'm looking to buy a telephoto lens - can anyone recommend a quality lens.

thanks in advance,

I have the Sony VCL-HGD1758 1.7x Tele conversion lens. This is a very nice lens for this camera. I have taken some really nice images with this setup. There are two drawbacks to it, 1) its a heavy lens when on the camera, so you need to use it with a tri-pod and 2) is that with the tele on and the camera at wide angle, you get some venyetting of the image. i like to use it past that, to full tele with digital zoom.

I have read some other lens might not work correctly with this carmera.

I am thinking of getting the CrystalVue LX lens from . It's the one right on that main page, and this is a link to tests people have done with it.

There is a linkto someone who has a DSC-707 and he has decent results with the lens. Hope that helps
