    I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W1. One of the reasons why I bought the camera is because of it's ability for lenses.

    I have been ebaying and googling for the last little bit and have seen a few things that have interested me.

    What do you guys think of this deal here.

    It is one wide and one telephoto lens.

    The lens manufacturer is Kenko.

    I did some google research and apparently Kenko is a decent brand.

    It's only $59.95 which really isn't that bad. I was looking on SonyStyle.com and they want like $40 for the adapter and $99 for the one lens and $120 for the other lens. The only difference I can tell is that one says sony and one doesn't.

    Not worth it IMO. They degrade quality quite a bit, but if you REALLY need to get wider or longer with your camera, I guess it's fine. :dunno:

    Yeah I'm just going to go for it. $60 bucks and it can't hurt anything :)
