I was ready to order the Raynox that Boliy was ordering but I did not want to do it with B&H. I avoid NY stores to avoid the sales tax 8.25%.:evil:

I looked into Amazon and their Raynox products (5 pages)and found a interesting aux lens by Raynox (it will be coming from 47th stree camera, a major nyc store but via Amazon. tax and frt. free):G

It has been discontinued according to the Raynox web site. It is called "Kodak Easy hare z7590,dx7590 dx6490 pro shooter wide angle lens" $79.95 38% increase which means a factor of .62 which sounds good. I hope I will not be stuck with a $79.95 Raynox shot glass!!!! :sad:

It's a shame you didn't check out ebay first. The same place has this exact one up for $59.95 Buy It Now.

It is not listed in te Raynox site any longer. May be discontinued. Will post results asap.

Been to Bucks County for weekend twice and wanted to visit that salvage place with all kinds of furnishings from estates.

It arrived. Nice and light in weight. I think it is lighter than the Kodak aux. lens made for my Z730 (37mm thread).

It comes with the adaptor to fit my z7590 but the male lens thread and female adaptor thread are 52mm which is nice since I have some 52mm filters from my Nikon days.

Will shoot some test during the weekend and post them to share.
