HellO! my name is chrissy and this is my first post. im hoping to get some advice on what equipment to buy because it is all very confusing to me. I own a Sony DSC f828 (7x zoom) camera with Carl Zeiss lens. I love taking surf shots, but im not satisfied with the zoom/quality of shots i get from the beach. I don't have waterproof housing for my camera, so shooting from the beach/pier are my only options. im looking for an affordable lens for a serious non-pro photographer that would give me maximum zoom/clarity for surf shots. i have done research, but i think i am more confused now than i was before. any suggestions?
