The dcr250 is a pretty powerful macro lens. You proabably want to get your feet wet with something a little less drastic. I would suggest getting the raynox rt5264p adapter for the fz10/15/20 (attaches like the supplied adapter) and the nikon 4t macro lens. Total cost $50-55.

Yes... I agree 100% with Fred. I just got the Raynox dcr250 for the FZ-1. This is a serious macro lens, and there will be a learning curve with it. I'm not sorry I got it, it's just that this is a lens you "grow into" if that makes sense.

OK, so the dcr250 is on the way. It will take some getting used to. I suggest you pratice at low zoom to start with even though you will get some vignetting. You do not have to use full zoom all the time. The dcr250 is an excellent lens and will give you wonderful results at 6x with no vignetting. Don't feel like you have to have the pedal to the metal all the time. But the poweris there when you need it.Lots of light and lots of patience. Have fun.

Fred

Sorry jazz, just caught up with this one. Excellent advice here.

Just a quick word. Practise inside on flowers, Flowers teach us how to handle not only the ratios but also lighting. Soft shadows under petals, DOF, selective focus, etc. Most of all, be patient but also stubborn with it. :-)

Danny.
