    it depends what you are using it for....but anyway..i would suggest a lens...and maybe a filter or two if you have spare money...

    See I would suggest a flash. That means it really comes down to you. Can you currently do things you like doing? I like shooting portraits so a flash is a must.

    not to be a jerk or anything, but how are you going to be able to use a flash on a camera that has no hotshoe?

    And you can't really buy "lenses" for it, just converters to place on the end that will make it wide or telephoto.

    That's the trouble with cameras like this...there really aren't many accesories that will help. There isn't a hot-shoe for a flash and the lens is built into the camera.

    You can get filters/adaptors to go in front of the lens but, for the most part, those aren't as good as most of us would like.

    If anything, I'd suggest a polarizing filter and maybe a wide angle adaptor.
