I truly love my R1, but I would like to get more reach (although I
mainly shoot landscape). The Sony proprietary telephoto lens
(w/adapter) is a joke for manageability, and it doesn't allow for
zooming. I have found, however, a possible alternative in the
Sakar 67mm telephoto lens (sale price $299.99 @ Abe's of Maine. It
screws on the R1 lens like a filter, so it should also allow for
zooming.
Has anyone had an experiernce w/this lens?
Abe's promises a 30 money back guarantee, but their reseller rating
isn't that high - what to do???
