Default MVC-CD400 questions

can anyone help me with the following questions regarding the Sony MVC-CD400?

In general, what are the drawbacks other than price and size?

Are there wide angle add-on lenses available?

Are there other comparable cameras out there with the same level of CD storage?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Sony is the ONLY company to make a digicam with an integral CD-RW drive. There really is no drawback other than size but the CD drive precludes making it any smaller. It looks heavy but it's surprisingly light in reality. As for add-on lenses, the vast majority of them are pretty low quality and serve only to distort or darken the images captured. I can't really recommend any of them.

Default Sony MVC-400CD follow-up question

Steve,
Thanks for the reply. Much of my photography involves outdoor panoramic shots where a wide angle lens gives a more accurate sense of the natural beauty. Is it unrealistic to expect a digital camera in general and the MVC-400CD in particular to deliver similar quality pictures as a 35 mm camera with a high quality wide angle lens in these situations?

Thanks for your advice.

Steve
