You ca view some pictures in my web:

All of then with Nikon 5700 (no zoom/ zoom 8x /DCR2020)

I think it´s a very good lens.

Greetings Albatross;

I would like to see some shots at a higher resolution, particularly something that has some sharp contrast. I have a TCON-17, and though I am generally quite pleased with it, under some situations it is prone to some noticable colour fringing. (see the flag below)



Granted this is not the best example, as everything was in motion (the car, the flag, the camera, my lunch...) but the fringing is quite noticable.

I'd like to see if the Raynox is immune to this problem.

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Have you seen this page yet, http://www.pbase.com/ociepka/2020

The maker used an Olympus C-750.

Just to add, a lot depends on the camera you use...some ultrazooms have an ED lens which helps get rid of CA. If your camera is more prone to CA without any attachments, it will be most likely worsened with the addition of a converter lens.

Hi Mike;

I just checked out the link. Is it just me, or is there noticable fringing on the raynox as well? For example, I see severe purple fringing in the shot of the weather vane down near the bottom of the image. I would copy it here, but it's not my image to use.

I agree that some cameras are more prone to colour aberrations.I have been assuming that this is more a product of the lens than the colour chip, thougn I have read discussions of the latter. From all that I've heard, the Schneider-Kreuznach lens on my Kodak DX6490 is a respectable piece of optics. I can't say as much about the electronics of the camera.

Hi Albatross;

Thanks, but the image you posted does not have enough resolution to zoom in and examine edge pixels. It is a nice shot, though.

Thank you Tom

When I had notice about Raynox DCR2020 I look some pics in Pbase.com

Some of then have aberrations (pink colour in border),but the have a good light



In my photos (with Nikon 5700) I can see the same aberrations in some pictures (but not pink colour but light blue in the corner)...only in a few pictures not in all of then

Raynox DCR 2020 Pro only work well if you put your camera at telephoto zoom (8x=280 mm). If you put the camera in other position of zoom (1x-8x), you will have vinetting in the corner.(black shadows)

Althoug I am very happy with this TC (I Had TC-E15ED-Nikon teconverter-some time ago and I return it to the shop beacuse it was only 1.5 x

With Raynox you will have 616 mm

Good night !!

Hello Albatross;

Thanks for your response. The issue of which optics to add to a camera is always a complex one, but eventually it boils down to what works for you (and how much money you are willing to spend)

I'm pretty sure eventually I'll have it figured out.

Thanks again.

This may help. Contains link to a side by side comparison using FZ20. However, some of the shots are postpocessed and I found it hard to follow what was what.
