Unfortunatley adding more glass won't solve any problems, since it will always pass the light through the original cheap servo lens. There is no real way to get better image out of the Z1.
It reminds me of when I was 14, and my brother dissasembled our RCA VHS camcorder, in hopes of switching lens. It wasn't until it was completely appart that he ceded to my insisting that it could not be replaced (of course, he didn't bother to reassemble it)

I hadn't thought of reducing depth of field, but I was thinking of adding to the telephoto end of the lens -- there no problem I'm attempting to solve.
And I considered using a 35 adapter, but I've seen cheap screw on to bayonet adapters too. just wondering how they work? other then gaining a little telephoto I was hoping to gain a mechanical focus collar! I wish they put real focus collars on the mid level cameras, but what can you do?
