hi

i have a macro lens rated at 10D. Im not 100% up on this stuff and am wondering if THIS lens http://www.olympus.co.uk/consumer/198_MCON-40.htm

is?

1. ok for use with the fz30 (i know it should fit due to 55mm thread)

2. is its magnification the same as the one i have or greater or less?

Thanks for the help

simon

There aren't any specs on the Olympus page you link to, so its hard to say. The Olympus lens appears to be marked "focal length 40cm". If that is correct, then the Olympus lens is +1.2 diopters. That would be significantly weaker than a +10 diopter lens. I assume that is what you mean when you refer to yours as "10D".
