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.

I am looking for a 14-200 lense for my lumix g1

You won't find one with that focal range as it's never been made. A lens with such a range will have far too many optical compromises and will be bulky and heavy, so it's unlikely to ever be made without a major change in materials technology. In 35mm terms, you're after an equivalent 28-400mm lens, and no manufacturer has ever come anywhere close to achieving that on any SLR system. In APS-C terms the equivalent would be an approximate 18-250mm which has been achieved by Tamron/Sigma, but the lens has to be used at modest apertures to achieve acceptable sharpness and exhibits very obvious barrel distortion at the wide angle end and pincushioning at the telephoto end. It's a lens which makes no sense at all as there are better performing digital bridge cameras which are smaller and lighter which can produce an overall similar image quality.

You can only achieve the focal angle you're after by using two micro four thirds zoom lenses or via two regular four thirds models with a four thirds to micro four thirds adaptor. Using micro four thirds models only, you could do this using the 14-45mm and 45-200mm lenses, both by Panasonic.

At the present time, the closest single micro four thirds lenses to what you want are the Olympus 14-150mm and the Panasonic 45-200mm. The first lens has a wide angle to medium telephoto capability, the second has a short telephoto to long telephoto capability.

I suggest that you click here to look at the micro four thirds joint catalog to see what's available.

Sorry you won't find precisely what you want, but I hope that my reply has saved you wasting further time in searching. Please take a moment to rate my answer.

Dropped my camera bag & my 17-55mm Lens Now will not telephoto

The best way to get it done right after you drop the lense is send it to NIKON NY . They put the lense on a resolution bench test and it make sure the resolution is great ,. This lense is very criticial and it is a must or your wasting your money . The reason is this ., The lense is a wide angle and sometimes photographers have probelms with 17-55mm lenses and sub mirror problems . So its best to be safe than sorry .

Purchase Zoom Lenses

Canon currently makes super Telephoto lenses from 300mm to 800mm and a number of zoom Telephoto lenses from 28-300 to 100-400. You can also special order a 1200mm lens from Canon at a cost of $99k! (There are only about 20 such lenses made so far.)

You can also get a 1.4 or 2x teleconverter to further increase the power of a telephoto lens. However, the cameras are unable to auto-focus when the minimum f-stop exceeds f/8, which can happen when you use one (or both) of the teleconverters on these longer lenses, so you have to manually focus the lens.

You can also get telephoto lenses from other manufacturers such as Tamron and Sigma that are built to work with Canon cameras. However, the Canon lenses are generally regarded as the best quality.

I want to add lens to my fujifilm s5600 to take better pics

There are lenses available to add with an adapter ring. I have the wide angle lens (which I LOVE) and a 2x telephoto lens. The wide angle lens allows me to macro from several feet away. It is an amazing lens. The telephoto lens is something you really need to use with a tripod. But yes, there are lenses you can add to your camera.

Epson 3000Z in "sports" mode

With the telephote lens, I am assuming that the camera is a bit more sensitive to any form of camera shake. My suggestion, when using the telephoto lens, is to manually set the shutter speed to its fastest setting (that, or set it to "sports mode"). Also, experiment with the telephote lens using your tripod. Set the camera up on a table and use the timer so that the camera will snap the image automatically. See if the picture is still blurry. If you don't have a tripod, just place it flat on the table.

Wide-Angle Lense Fuzziness

That's completely normal for those cheap wide angle add on lenses. There good for a little fun but nothing serious. I bought the lens kit for the Kodak DC3400, probably the exact same lens. The telephoto in that kit was actually pretty reasonable though.
