I have recently purchased a FZ20 and was wondering are there many optional lenses out there for this model. IE fish eye lenses ect.. and are they expensive?

See the "Converter Lenses" section of my FZ-10 user guide. The FZ-10 and FZ-20 share the same set of lens accessories.

If you can't find the Raynox info you want here...I doubt you will find it anywhere else.

Check out BugEyeDigital.com to purchase your Raynox and other lenses. They have a large inventory and decent pricing. That's where I got mine.

Raynox lenses are great, but some of them can cause vignetting to certain camera, such as FZ-20. Those lenses ought to be made a bit bigger, I guess. As far as I know, the Panasonic add-on lenses are the bestfor FZ-10/20. But their prices are waaayyyyyover the sky.Youliterally buy another FZ camera when you buy their lenses.

Please see the "Converter Lenses" of my FZ-10 user guide for more details. Yes, the Panasonic LTZ-10 1.5X is the best available for the FZ-10/20. On the other hand, the Nikon equally expensive TC-E17ED 1.7X can be as good as if not better than the LTZ-10. The problem is that the Nikon TC-E17ED has an odd thread size (60mm?) that no one supports. If some one could make a 62-60 thread converter, I am willing to give my TC-E17ED a try.
