Besides the Olympus and Kodak(.7x) are there any wider ones compatible with my

Z7590? Do they use the Kodak tube I currently have? If you have one can you post a picture or two?

Thanks,

BiLL

I ordered the raynox hd-6600 pro, 3 weeks ago, I should get it very soon !!

0.66x ...

I will post pictures of it and with it as soon as I will get it :-)

Oh and by the way it transforms my p850 lens in a 24 mm wide-angle

Thanks!

My Z7590 lens starts at 38mm is that the same as yours?

Is that the fancy aux that is convex as opposed to concave (or is it vis versa?) to avoid flare?

I often tease my girl friend who likes telephoto by saying that telephoto is for peeping in windows and wide angle is for seeing all the windows on the building.

My p850 lens starts at 36mm, its not a big difference !!

That means that with the raynox hd-6600 wide-angle you will get a 25 mm focal lenght !!

If you want, I have some comparison pictures I took at the camera shop

Bill -

Stay with Kodak, Olympus, or Raynox. The cheaper lenses are pure junk.

Yes I know Sarah

Junk can be costly when you add cost of second replacment.

But I am looking for wide.

Money is no object so long as it is not expensive!

Bill-

Here is a Z-7590 photo, taken this morning, using the Kodak Wide Angle auxillary lens. This Therapy Pool is housed in a very small room and I was impressed and pleased with the performance turned in by the Kodak (55mm base) lens. Please also keep in mind that this is a rather large aux lens.
