    Hello!
    I have bought from eBay a Wide angle adapter (tube + macro lens + wide
    angle lens), made by Mercury Optics (Japan).
    When I put it on my camera a new display icon appears, telling me
    about the adaptor on the lens (the tube press a little switch on the
    Sony original lens). In this operating mode, zoom, IR lamp (N.Framing
    and N.Shot) and focus control don't work (disabled). But the Camera
    doesn't focus well... my photos are all blur!!!
    The adapter can be mounted only in this way (no other combination
    possible).
    How can I take focused photos?

    Thank's all!
    And Have a nice Xmas...

    Christian,

    Not sure what is causing your problem but I would head over to
    www.sonycams.com , they will sort you out.

    Cheers.

    Also, try putting camera in macro mode if you can, some addon lenses
    only work well if the original lens is close-focussed..
