i just bought a panasonic lumix dmc-fz7. i feel i have outgrown my little pocket casio camera. i love taking macro photography and want to get a lens for my FZ-7 to increase the magnification of my macro photos. can anyone recommend anything? im not an expert by any means so can you explain any acronyms ( such as DOP) and stuff like that. thanks all

The Nikon 4t/6t are very good ones for the price, those are both +2.9 diopter. And the Raynox dcr-150 would be a good one to start with too, and this one is +4 diopter.

A comment on the 4T, this can be really hard to find, while the DCR-150 seems to be available everywhere. The 6T is a bit easier to find, but also costs a bit more. With the DCR-150 you can get vignetting in some cases due to its smaller size.

it depends.......

I don't know the size of the objects you are hunting.

You will find a table of achromats here:


The new field of view section at the end helps you to find the right diopters!
