Hey guys. I recently bought an Olympus C720UZ, with 320mm of zoom, no counting the horrible digital zoom. Anyways, I'm pretty satisfied with my pics in good light,BUT I want to get closer! What would you people suggest I get to improve my zoom dramaticaly? I know you can buy teleconverter's, but how do they work along with your exsisting lense, and how do you put them on? And what would boost my 320mm to about 600mm? Any suggestions would be great. Here are a few samples of my current pieces of work.

Blair,
Olympus does not list an add-on lens for the C-700/720/730 except for a wide angle on their website. If you want 600mm, then you will need an SLR type body from what I have seen. Maybe some other manufacturer does, but I was looking when I was using the c-700 and never found one.

I would check eBay before you buy at those prices. There are lots of Japan-made 52mm lens adapters and the like.
