Maybe I should first buy that 'BESSEL Mega Kit', and tell you my opinion! I am attracted by the low price of it...if there is no objection from the forum friends...!a.

I would be obliged if you do this for me! Even though I know that you always get what you pay for, I would like to hear your comments. So the link is http://www.digitaltoyshop.co.uk/MEGA...Z38_t1808_4822

kibaris,

I'm pretty sure I saw this set on another website with some very negative reviews. Since I can't remember where it was, it may not even be the same thing - but I suspect it's not going to provide a very good return on investment.

It may have not been the same one; can't remember the details I'm afraid.

In that case, is it true to say that for fz38 the only w/a, macro, and tele, lens-converters are the Raynox and the Panasonic? No other brand is it worth to buy? All the other brands are only providing problems and low quality? This sounds very restricting and narrow.a.

EvilBAY has them for <$50

Made in Japan (so it says). How bad can it be?

G'day all

Thanks Kibaris for that link ... My 1st reaction was "gee that's amazing", my 2nd reaction was "caveat-emptor - buyer beware"

I cannot see any lens kit selling for that price that will provide 1/2-decent image quality. While it might bolt-on to any 1/2-decent camera [eg the panny FZ38] I would expect that only the centre 1/2-inch diameter of the image will be sharp and the outer stuff will be blurry as hell

Before buying I would closely read their Returns-Policy
Regards, Phil
