Thanks Sarah!

I have the Kodak Wide aux for my Z730 and like it very much. I have seen pictures of the 55mm Kodak wide which is very big and front heavy. Before I settle for this big beast I want to see what there is outside of the Kodak line.

Is the RaynoxorOlympus as big and front heavy.

Bill-

That is a good question. I was quite amazed at the very large size of the Kodak aux lens when I unpacked it and tried it this morning. If there is something smaller, I would surely like to know about it. Please keep me updated with your search results.

Sarah ~

A lens that big just screams "scratch dust scratch dust"

I was thinking (or trying too :?), I am very happy with the Kodak wide aux lens on my Z30. Wanting one for the larger Z7595 is justing asking for a about $100.00 clone of the small aux. lens.

I still would like a wider view.

When I was into my Nikon FE and FE2 I had a Nikon 24, 35 and 45 lens which liked a lot and a Vivitar full frame 16mm 2,8 fish eye lens which I liked even more!

I may have better luck looking for a aux fish eye lens circular or full frame if one can be had for under $100.00

I have seen a interesting one called "Demon Fisheye lens" for video of out door sports. interesting web site but sounds too much like a hard sell.

The search goes on, and on !

Oh and I forgot to mention that the raynox lens I am talking about have threads at the end !!

So you can put a filter to protect the wide-angle lens

Have you seen the Demon Fisheye web site?

Thanks for the link, but I prefer a lens with less distortion possible !!

And the size of the threads in front of the wide-angle lens is 72mm !!

Boily-

What is a really good website for Raynox wide angle attachments. I already have both a 55mm and a 58mm lens adapter. It looks like that Raynox DCR H-6600 Pro is only set up for 52mm threads.

Here is one possibility that I found at B&H, note the wide end (lens cap end)is 82mm!

Thanks for the help.

Thanks, Boily-

That looks better and it is somewhat smaller (72mm versus 82mm). I appreciate the help.
