More than 2X?

Is there anyway to exceed with quality the 2X (tele) limitation in a VX2000? I am working with birds and sometimes (more than I want) the 2X is not enough..... :D

Not sure what you mean Fed. Are you talking digital zoom here?

No Tom, I am talking about tele lens adapter for the vx2000. Seems that the more powerfull is the 2X....I have the Sony 1.7X (btw very good quality) but i need more, and looks like 2X (century) is the only option I have....isn' it?

The problem is that the difference between 1.7 and 2x is so slight and spending all that money for so little difference won't seem worth it. Have a look at www.eagleeyeuk.com for some real telephoto converters, though the VX2k has a pretty big front element, and this'll make getting a telephoto difficult.
