I just got my B&H catalog in the mail, and they have the Raynox 2.2x telephoto lens w/a 62mm rear thread. I assume I can screw that in to the Phayee adapter I ordered. Before I order it, I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about it, esp. image quality. It is $189.95 at B&H photo, which is a heck of a lot cheaper than the Panasonic tele lens (and that is only 1.5x, I believe). I have heard the name Raynox but don't know anything about the quality. Does anyone know about them and/or this lens?

So....nobody knows anything about the lens. I have a vague memory of Raynox making mediocre products, does anyone have a raynox lens???

Run a search for "raynox 2.2x" at dpreview. For example, see http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...ssage=10267246 Considering price, the raynox lens do pretty well. I have the raynox dcr250 super macro lens (+8 diopter) and it is an excellent lens ($50). I also have a couple of their wa converters (5000 and 720) that are fair to middling.

I have it and like it and it screws into the Phayee adapter just fine. This was taken with the Raynox 2020 pro
