I am thingking about purchasing this new Raynox lense for my Fuji s-5000. Does anyone have any comments about these? Are there any better lenses to use on the S-5000? Has anyone seen good prices yet?

Thanks for any help,

Ian:|

Ian, i have the raynox 2.2x addon. i think i posted sme pics in the forum about the raynox and the collpix 5700. anyway here are 2 shots i took with my fuji s602z (very similar to the s5000). the butterfly was taken at about 5 meters. obviously yhe picture is cropped quite a bit and sharpened up. the bleeding hearts was done in macro mode with the raynox 2.2x on the camera. that was at about 2 feet, i think. in macromode at full zoom allows focus from about 4 inches back to a few feet and gives an image spot of approximately 35 - 40 % of the viewing screen.

Thanks for the pics Dennis. They've convinced me that the Raynox on my S-5000 is a great option. Now all I have to do is find a good price in Ontario Canada for the DCR-2020. Once again thanks.

There's Henrys http://www.henrys.ca/ and Vistek http://www.vistek.ca/ but I don't know if they have the DCR-2020...you may have to get it from the States like B&H, http://www.bhphoto.com

Here's the distributor of Raynox http://www.edmamarketing.com/dc.htm located in Markham, Ont. You might be able to get some info from them.

Let me know how you get on...I may also get this lens since (I'm also from Ontario). ;-)

Hello ppl,

I don't have a Fuji but I do own an Olympus C740 andwas looking forward to buy a Raynox DCR 2020 PRO myself but looking at the prices, it's a bit expensive, not less than 200 US $, while the 1.7x Tcon of Olympus is like 100$. I'm a raynox fan as I do have the DCR - 250 Super Macro lens which is a charm. I'm now confused of which one to pick up as I need the zoom and quality as much as I need the money

Is there any hope we will find the prices drop down for Raynox tele-lenses, or any place people can buy them cheaper?

Cheers

here's a shot using the raynox 2020 in macro mode with my fuji s602z. not the best but not bad for this lense.
