After watching this forum for some time, I find it to be very enjoyable, and informative. I am looking to add a tele-photo lense to my Dx 7590 and was wondering if anyone here has had any experience wtih the Raynox 2020 Pro.

I never tried the raynox 2020 Pro but I own an Olympus Tcon17 and it works REALLY WELL

Here is a little comparison:

The tcon17 is a very good teleconverter!!

I don't think you can get a better one for your Dx7590...

When I bought mine,an expert told methat Olympusare makingthe best teleconverters (for non-dslr cameras) on the market!!!

slt49,,i did a pile of research into this a few years ago,,and found that the best lense for the DX line of cameras was the tcon17x ,,it has the correct thread diameter at the rear,does not add a lot of CA (purple fringing)..is fairly light,and cheap for a tele add on lense..the Raynox has a little more CA .Me and Paul were some ofthe first ones here to beat this lense to death in tests....it works very well with this camera for an add on lenses...i have thousands of examples of hummingbirds,bald eagles,bluejays,etc, that were taken with that lense...
