I'm thinking about buying a Raynox DCR2020PRO for my FZ20, already have the 1.54x Raynox and very happy with reults. Does anyone else use the 2020PRO,and how do you like it? Are you able to use the zoom feature, as I read it is only meant to be used at full camera zoom. Thought I'd also add my first photo to the forum. Full optical zoom with a Raynox 1.54x, handheld, croppped down by approx half. It's a Kestral. It was stalking some breakfast up and down the cliffs near where I live.

Here are a lot of photos taken with the FZ20 and the 2020 pro and while it does very well on shots like these it is not the best quality lens you can use....However it is the best 2 X lens I have seen but the vignetting and CAis a real pain at least in my opinion. The vignetting is there to 12X in fact its there untill 13X but if you feel you need the power its the best I have seen at that power.

If you are using it a place like a Zoo, you have to keep putting it on and taking it off..whereas if you have something like a 14B that only vignettes to 3X you can just leave it on..you give up some power but gain in quality and function. If they would have done something with the vignetting it would be a fine lens.
