Is there any reason why these wouldn't work on the fz20?

Well the question isn't about the quality of the product but rather a technical one that I thought forum members could help me with. I ssems that many members step down to 62mm lenses such as the Nikon 6T on an fz20 and I wondered if there was a reason for this or if these cheap 72mm lenses would work.

Inexpensive close-up sets like this are single element lens and tend to give good focus at the center of the image but soft focus towards the edges/corners. Dual element close-up lens such as the 62mm +3 diopter nikon 6t (which wouldrequire a 72mm- 62mm step-down-ring) flatten out the image to achieve good focus to the edges. If you are considerig other add-on len such as ateleconverter or polarizer or a uv filter for lens protection, it is more advisable to get anotheradapter for the fz20. Yoshida, pemaraal, raynox are some in sizes 52mm, 55, 58, and 62. A goodaffordable combination forclose-up is to get the $16 raynox rt5264p 52mm adapter (64mm is the fz20 receiving diamter)and the 52mm nikon 4t (same as 6t) for $30. Also get a 52mm uv filter to keep on at all times with the adapter for lens protection. The 4t can be screwed into the uv filter with no quality degradation. See http://www.ishots.net/fz1-2faq/fz1macros.htmfor info on fz series macros.
