thanks for the replies, guys!
wow barney, have you been a secretary in your former life? you must type really fast. your posts always are so huge and consistently giving good suggestions, hints and things like that, and i don't find any typos at all
Well Barney and Wontolla, what have we here: Two opinions that couldn't be more different from each other.
well, i read both your posts, and my conclusion was: Ah [admin: avoid swearing please] it, just go for the cheap lenses, it just doesnt feel right buying a lens worth a whole camera.
BUT if these new lenses are [admin: avoid swearing please], i have the right to return them to the seller at ebay (like after a 2 week period latest) and get my money back.
I got a set of different Lenses now for about 100 Euros (about 150 $) which contains a wideangle lens (x0.45) (including a macro lens i can take off) and a teleconverter (x2.0).
When i got the lenses i will immediately test them thoroughly and post the results here, we'll see.
either of you will be right
thanks for the lensmate tip (i guess it's ok to post links to such sites here!), didnt know they build converters so i can choose from a lot of lenses (not only the ones from ebay
grand i found your lenses in the web, still too expensive. will see what the cheap ones can do and can not do, so i can later eventually invest into more expensive ones.
as i'm writing this i noticed, due to the fact that the a620 has it's own lens and i have to use the adapter i screw the other lens on, i think i will not be able to take highspeed macro pics anymore (because the lensbody is blocking the flash). hm, we will see
by the way, the example tele pic you provided really does look fudged, wontolla. ouch. hopefully my lenses will be da bomb *crosses fingers*
edit: edit, haha, automatic swear filtering, funny
for the fun of it, i will let the "admin comment" in my post, i guess you know what i mean anyway
