telephoto lens for vx2100

Hello,

Looking to purchase a good telephoto lens for under $200.
Saw this one on ebay, but can't find any reviews. Anyone
know if this is a good buy?

Zeikos ZE-4558T 58mm 4.5X Telephoto Lens

Thanks,
Troy

A 4.5x telephoto is really extreme... I would be suspicious of the quality. With that much magnification, you will get substantial vignetting... possibly even at full zoom. I think you will find that the better tele-adaptors are more like 1.5x or 2.0x at most.
