Anyone use the Kodak DX6340 Lens Adapter and Telephoto Lens?

    I have a DX6340 and the whole family is enjoying it.

    The 4X optical is nice and clear but once I start using the digital zoom the
    picture quality drops noticeably.

    What added optical zoom can I expect using this setup?

    I am curious about the experience of others using the Kodak Lens adapter and
    the Kodak Retinar 37 mm Telephoto Lens.

    Was toying with buying the DX6490 before I bought this one but the extra
    dollars weren't there and did not want the dock.

    Before I spent the $$ I would like experiences, opinions and thoughts on
    this.

    TIA

    Digital zoom does have this drawback

    I don't know about these lenses, but see below

    The Kodak DX6490 10X zoom is fabulous. I love it. Seems to me it would
    be worth the price if you are thinking about buying a new camera. The
    dock enables you to charge the batteries, as well as help you transfer
    the pictures, and to me is worth the money.

    The DX6490 gets generally good reviews. I would opt for the complete
    system -- the DX6490 -- instead of a camera not designed for big zooms,
    augmented with lenses to increase its ability.

    Thanks Paige

    But that wasn't what I was asking.

    I did get some sample pictures from a DX6490 owner before I bought and was
    really impressed. BUT I did not go that route due to the $$.
