Really good series Stefan. Each post is showing better and better shots.... so why do you think you need the DSLR?

@ Rafal. Good luck with the Raynox250, it takes some getting used to... next to no depth of field even at F8

Square one,

thanks a lot for your praise.

Yes, you are right, I also have the impression to become better with every shot.

I think, that a DSLR like the Nilon D7000 or Pentax K-5 would give me much better results (IQ) at bad weather and light conditions.

Cheers,

Stefan

High,

I would suggest the Marumi +5 Achromate, because it has a higher magnification (5x) than the LC55 (2x) and a much better quality than the Raynox.

Cheers,

Stefan

@ shutter priority, The Raynox 250 is an 8 diopter macro, while the LC55 is a close up lens (I thought X3)

If you go for the Maumi, make sure it's the Achromate version.

Thanks all,
for the suggestions regarding Marumi +5 Achromate they are available in different sizes i have a small doubt here which one would fit my FZ40 52mm one or the 55mm

You need the 55mm version to screw into the lens adapter.

At the risk of repeating information, you MUST make sure it's the Achromate version, the Digital High Grade version is very poor quality and (should) be far cheaper.

Good luck, with the lens when it arrives.
