    Hi,
    Thanks for the prompt reply. I am intending to purchase a macro/wide-angle for my Sony F707. Alan Photo quoted me a Vitacon one for $90+ (58mm). Still pondering whether to buy or not but one of my fren say its quality not very good, you have any comments?? Or do you have any good quality but not-too-ex lens to recommend????

    I think macro/wide angle lens is really arround that price. Ive got mine (58mm Kenko) for almost 100$ also (i cant remember the exact price).

    You may try using closeup filters for macro, but i wont bring any wider..

    I wud stay away from vitacon if I were you Did not haf a good experience with it.

    For the 7x7 series, I recommend the Sony Wide angle. You spend more, but the quality is there.
