yes - that's what I meant!
(incidentally I am a SHE not a HE)

I cannot afford to be on this forum - you are all leading me into temptation! I was checking out prices for the LC55E & saw it on Amazon . . . . & went for it. Might as well have it sooner rather than later I suppose. Within 2 hours I got an email saying it had been shipped. Ah well, photography is a great value hobby cos not only can you have fun taking pictures but also have more fun sharing them with others on forums like this. I got the FZ38 as the solution to the problem of travelling overseas with all the weight & paraphernalia of DSLR (airline weight restrictions - grrr!) - it is about to go on it's first proper outing as I am taking it for MY first trip to Athens in March. Lots of subject matter there to get our teeth into. Doubt I'll be doing many macros.

Geoff - I find that Raynox is pretty much limited to macro photography, and with its tiny DOF, it's very hard to use. On the other hand, the LC55 is a much more versatile close-up lens with a focus range of 1 to 4 feet or so (that is, I can focus on something as much as 4 feet away). The lens quality is excellent on the LC55 also, that I can crop and enlarge to something equivalent to the Raynox.

Thanks for that Saly, and you are right. I will stay with the Panasonic add ons...
