Do you truly find the additional expense, mechanics of installation, and size of the rig when "assembled" to be worth the limited added focal length gained by all this? Is my math correct is that the XZ-1 WITH these things added, increases to a 6.8X zoom? I'm not being negative, or finding fault. Just trying to work through....if such an acquisition would be worth it compared to maybe just purchasing a longer zoom camera instead.

I think the results of this combo is quite good. I have had experience with the 1.7X adapter in the past, and liked it then.

Thanks for commenting.
