telephoto and macro lens for FX1 need advice please

Hello

I am looking to get a telephoto and macro lens for my FX1 i want to use the macro for very close up shots like of insects, and would like to use the telephoto lens to get nice close up sharp images of the moon. is this sort of thing going to be possible with these sort of lenses? Also where would i buy something like this from is there a good manufacture to go with when buying lenses or is a lens a lens?

Please give me some advice.

Thanks

Jim

Unfortunately there are few options for telephoto on the FX1. The topic is discussed at some length in this thread:

Century Optics all the way!
I on a shoot right now and am using their 1.6x, .7x, and fisheye...as well as matte box and filters. 99% of my shots have a lens attached or the matte box and filters.

I was shooting tonight with my Z1 and got a nice shot of the moon using the 1.6 tele.
