Tony,

Did you actually try the raynox dcr720 ? any vignetting ?
Because in comparisation to the others it is quite cheap (€44) i'm getting interested..
Finally i had the opportunity to take some test shots with the Soligor yesterday..Haven't looked at them yet but, I'll post them later today..

Share your thoughts on comparing to the dcr720



Normal Shot at camera's widest angle



With Soligor at camera's widest angle.

Nope....as of yet i do not know if anyone tried the DCR720 on the M410R. On the Raynox site it does not say if there is any vignetting or not with our camera.

Wasn't gerrard in the running for the 720 as well if i remember correctly from
an older thread....

On the Raynox compatibility list there is a note that cameras listed with **
'might' cause vignetting. The M410 is listed without ** so i guess i would be
safe there...

The soligor pictures i postedbefore were made with the converter wich is
exactly the same as theolympus one..(to avoid confusion) it'svery big and
heavy but if feels really well build. I'ts not going to be mychoice...

OK ....It was a uninspiring day ... light-wise ....but Wolfgang demanded shots .....and I did say I'dgo and "do" some! :-)

And ..... shots are what we want from our cameras ..... so here are some wide angel ....sorry ...... angle :-) ...... comparison shotsbetween the native M410R set to widest ......... and the Yashica Electro series Wide Aux supplementary lens.

No sharpening was applied ....but adjustments were made to correct for variations in exposure and a "toned-down" variant of Auto-levels were applied in Adobe PS. All shots are full frame resized to approx 720x 550... except where i say the shot is a 100% extract.

I will post some more shots in the next hour or so ..... I think the observant amongst you will figure out which shot was from which lens combination!:P

Cheers, KK

Indoor first.

I'll pausefor the moment ...... before I post a few more.

I must say that the more I use the Yashica Electro series Aux Wide Angle supplementary lens .... the more I like it!

It may not be a 0.66 ....but it can't be accused of wiping the quality off the original lens. I detect nonoticeable softness, distortions, colour changes, chromatic aberration etc etc........ just the expected addition of blowing up the noise along with the image if you wish to extract like-for-like selections from the two images!

And now that I have mounted it properly on the camera ...my initial findings of minor vignetting have disappeared ....... I think I had a slightly off-set home-made tube!

More shots soon.

KK
