    anyone know of a good lens that i can add to my a70 to add some optical zoom?
    i want to take some pics of friends surfing. The optical zoom on the a70 is only 3x anyone know of a lens to add more?

    I believe that you're pretty much screwed on that one. Unless your lens has the ability to take a screw in lens filter... If so I suggest a magnification or close up filter.

    if it fits, should increase your optical zoom to at least 6

    the canon one is pretty expensive. have a look on ebay, you can find ones for a lot less. search here for reviews: http://forums.powershot-a.com/

    the cheaper ones arent as nice optics as the canon, but for the money youll probly be very happy.
