What size lens do i need for this camera?


You just need any Minolta AF mount lens. Sony Alpha lenses also physically fit as Sony inherited the Minolta lens mount when they bought the company, but as they are a later development not all will be electronically compatible.

The size of the lens depends upon the focal length of the lens and you choose that according to how wide a field of view you desire. Typical lenses are 28 and 35mm wide angles, 50mm "standard" (approximately the same perspective of how the human eyeball sees images), 70 to 90mm short telephoto lenses (a narrower perspective and very good for portraits) and higher numbers are narrower perspective telephoto lenses for viewing increasingly distant objects. In practice, the available lenses will be incorporated into zoom lenses which incorporate a seamless range of focal lengths within one single model. The word "zoom" reflects the fact that you can seamlessly change from say 28mm wide angle through to 80mm short telephoto and every single setting between them

Any zoom which starts at less than 50mm and finishes in the short telephoto range is called a standard zoom and is the lens that most autofocus cameras were supplied with. The next most common size will be something like a 70-200mm which is a telephoto zoom (or tele zoom) and takes you from a portrait lens to a genuine 5x magnification telephoto. You may also find so-called "super zooms" which do the whole job on one, for example 28-200mm. but the more jobs a single lens tries to do, the bigger and bulkier it becomes and the image quality deteriorates due to poorer contrast and greater image distortion at each end of the zoom range.

This is not an exhaustive answer, as there are entire books on the subject, but hopefully it's been of help to you.

Have a Panasonic FZ50. Puchased a Tokina 3x Telephoto today. Screwed the Telephoto on with the correct adapter ring.Changed the Menu setting to Tele. Go to take a Photo and i can only get the conversion...


Most add on lenses are designed to be used at a certain focal length, a zoom should be used (is most effective) when you are completely zoomed out, (really why would you add a zoom lens then not zoom all the way) a wide angle lens should be used with the zoom all the way in (cause your getting the widest angles). As far as quality, you really shouldn't have an issue except you may get black edges depending on how big the end of your lens is. Good luck

These screw on the front of the plastic lens adapter and adjust the focal length. On the side of the adapter lenses it will quote the ratio. My wide angle says 0.66x so just multiply the range of focal lengths by this figure and you will see that it adjusts the camera zoom accordingly - making the image wider and probably also increasing the depth of field (what is in focus). Similarly a 1.5 tele will inrease the range of focal lengths to make the lens "longer" eg higher magnification , useful for astro photography - shots of the moon and terrestrial long distance work but detracting from the depth of field, eg the range of distance over which objects are in focus will be reduced.

The wide angle will allow you to come in close and get WIDE objects fully in-frame- hence "wide angle", while the telephoto will give you better overall maginification of the image but will probably increase the MINIMUM focal length - eg you may not be able to focus on objects closer than >2m (instead of ~1).

The screw-on adapter lenses I found were cheap in a Jessops sale use a 52mm thread, while the S5500 provides a 55mm internal thread. I use an appropriate 55mm to 52mm step down ring adapter. There is slight vignetting (shading around the edge of an image) at certain combinations of zoom, but generally these are very useful accessories.

As these are adapter lenses on the front of an already powerful 10x zoom that must be optically compromised at the price of this camera, there maybe some colour fringeing around bright images. If you want a better solution you really need to get a DSLR. Overall a good solution for the price.
