In need of a macro lens for a FZ20. Reccommendations? Probably will be shooting close ups of small parts to send over then net.

How small is small? The raynox dcr250 +8 diopter horizontal field of view is close to 1cm at 12x zoom. Comes with a clip on adapter. There is a lip at the front of the fz20 extension housing that will accept that adapter. Just make sure to turn off the auto sleep so the lens doesn't try to retract. Otherwise, one of the many fz20 tube adapters is needed. The raynox rt5264p works nicley.

I got my Raynox DCR250 today -- very nice lens, and I'm really happy with it. I posted one of my test shots, the head of a moth, on this forum this evening. The DCR250 is pretty powerful; if you don't need a lens as strong as this one, consider the DCR150.
