    Anyone have any suggestions for lenses for a Canon A95? I the camera but I want more zoom. For the first time I experienced the upper deck at a football game and was forced to using digital zoom along with my 3x optical zoom. I'm a total noob when it comes to this stuff, but I'm doing my best to learn quickly. I appreciate any help that you can offer.

    Get the Sigma 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3.
    It'll give you extra 10x zoom in addition to the zoom you already have.

    That looks to be slightly out of my price range and seems to be 3 times what the camera cost! Am I looking at the right thing?

    No.
    I was fucking with you.
    You need a DSLR for that lens.

    Yes.
    P&S cameras can only use conversion, not interchangeable lenses.

    Are there different kinds of conversion lenses avail? Or is Canon the only one to go through? How much total zoom would that give me? And would that kill detail in the picture?

    Yeah...it is a shitty compromise. You will not be happy with the results. Either forget about it or get a SLR and a telephoto lens.
