Only 649??? I don't beleive it even though it says without memory card!
AlsoI would get that in a heartbeat for 1000 if they had a teleconverter (larger than 1.5) that fits it. Ritz camera adverizes a 3X for "ALL" coolpixs but I think the 5700 has different size even with adapter ring..
Please see if you can find out more..

649? How much you want to bet that's a foreign model with no warantee, no memory, no charger, no battery, no nothing! Don't even try to get the factory to fix it if it breaks. Good price, but you takes your chances. Oh, how about a manual in english! If you even get one.

I wish it were a 2x converter too. How about 3x? With no loss of resolution?! 1.5x = approx 10% loss of light. 2x = approx 20% loss. The adapter ring is a 5700 part number. The ac power supply from the others will work though. I bought from a camera shop and they called Nikon tech support while I was waiting to make sure. The lens is a different size than all the other CoolPix's. It is a brand new model. I had to wait 3 weeks for the supply chain to catch up to the demand. Noticed they want $329 for 256mb CF. I paid $359 for 512mb fast memory. Got a 256mb also in case I get crazy in hi-rez mode.

I do like the camera. The Sony does do better at low light though if you have a need for that. Sony has 2x digital zoom. Nikon has 4x. But that's not what you want. Compare the glass when it comes to zoom. There is a company that makes an 8x converter and I'm trying to find out if it will work with the 5700. Saw it in this month's Outdoor Photography magazine.

There are easier to use cameras, but this one has a lot of features and I wanted a hi-performance camera, so I don't mind taking the time to learn them all. And it's not that hard really.
