Hello,

HD3030pro was initially designed to be used with cp950, 990, 995 and 4500. The quality is excellent and at only 1/3 price (as in Hong Kong) of FC-E8. In fact I read the user sample photos and reviews in Taiwan DC forum before I acquire one for my A80. Here's the link for the cp4500 + HD3030pro photos:

FC-E8 covers almost over 180 degree of view and it is more than HD3030pro can do, but I could tell you very often you don't need it (unless you want to shoot your own feet too! :-)). And it is interesting to find that the FC-E8 has blurry photo edge for near to medium distance scenery while HD3030pro is sharp to the edge with objects farther than 4meters away.

Rudolf.

Also check out the Raynox site for sample photos:

Raynox should be able to tell you of a local retailer in HK:
