HI, I've generally been pleased with KM and Raynox lensand found the ACT-100 ACW-100 give really fine pictures. The CL49-200 is very light andvery easy to use. The only CL shot I have on-line is

http://ww2.lafayette.edu/~reiterc/hi.../wpict6815.jpg

which is just picture of the granite crystals on an outcrop in the Jay ridge of the Adirondacks. It wasn't a great shot, and I will say the CL lens does its job of getting really close, but tends to focus best in the center. I haven't tried any studio type shooting with the lens (not my cup of tea) but I suspect one can do better than I did. I'ld be happy to hearadvice about using the CL lens or ideas for experiments.

Best, Cliff

I was checking out the Raynox DCR-250 and it states it will fit filter sizes 52mm and up. As the A200 has49mm threads does this lens fit straight onto the camera or do you need some modification?

Thanks in advance

Simon

You will need a 49mm to 52mm step up ring. Only a few pounds or dollars.

I have one for my A2 and a Nikon 4T close up lens with the same thread size (52mm).

Only had the 4T for a short while, but love it already. Check out a couple of my pics with it here, http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...amp;forum_id=7 And here, http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...amp;forum_id=7

Hi,

There's no need to buy any converter to install dcr-250 on km-a200 coz
the filter size in DCR-250 is 49mm !!

I take some fotos with kmA200+Raynox DCR-250 and I must say !! Raynox rules !!
