Tele adapters.

There has been discussion here about wide-angle adapters and what folks use, but I don't see anything about tele adapters. I know the A1 has a 20x zoom but . . . shooting wildlife I could use more.

Anyone have experience with one they can share?

It'll be hard to beat the A1's original zoom with a regular lens. I guess your best bet would be to buy a 35mm adapter and use a 500mm lens. You can buy a letus35 for 300$ plus a 500mm for 100$.

I can't believe a 100$ lens is going to be any good compared to the A1 lens - 100$? Was that a typo?
Interesting idea though...
