Hello everybody, new around these parts. I was wondering if anybody has a good recomendation on a Macro accesory lens for my p850. Basically I do a lot of aquarium photography and I got this camera in order to upgrade an Olympus z740 I have that actually takes awesome close ups.

Any advise would be appreciated.



This I took with the Oly I want to be able to better this.

Jorge...Go here and look. These are 55mm closeup lens that wii fit on the adapter for the P850 camera. Hope this helps.

After buying these lenses, try to use the manual focus on the P850 to get the clearest close-ups possible

TY for your advise guys. Is there anything higher end that would be suitable for this camera? I looked through the link provided but everyhting I saw seems to be made with one element. Not trying to be a smartass, just want to explore all my options.



TY

Yes they are one element but stackable to get a higher magnification! Put a +2 with a +4 and you have a +6 etc.
