I guess the Raynox closeup-lenses fit the H5, just like they fit all other ultrazooms.
Thats a cheap and excellent alternative for closeup then....dont know anything about tele though.

Check the macros on my page if you'd like. All close macros are with my S5 and a Raynox DCR-250. All photos are very sparsely manipulated.

The typical close up lenses recommended for the H series would be the Canon 250d and 500d or the Sony VCL-M3358

You can sometimes find the Canon lenses on ebay for a good price.
