Go on ebay and search for Olympus B-300. Get that lens, it is the best for the F707 and F717.


Here are examples with the B-300 1.7X teleconverter.

Umm... I'd recommend you get the lens that Sony makes specifically for the F707 and F717, its the VCL-HG1758, its a 1.7x teleconvertor. I have one, and I like it quite a lot...

This is the only photo I've uploaded to a.net with the lens...

I find the Olympus B-300 1.7x to be an excellent addon for the 707/717.

Having used both lenses, I can say, that both are good. Sony's TC is a bit heavier, but produces the same superb pictures as the B300.

Example, (the one right taken just about 16 hrs ago):
