I need some help here folks. I am in the market looking for a Macro Conversion lens for my fz20 and the best advise from "Head Office" of a large camera chain in town is that "no macro conversion lens is made for the fz20". What they did suggest is that I try a German made "macro filter" instead.

Any thoughts out there on this issue? :?

i'm impatiently awaiting a Nikon 6T close-up lens that should give you the same result. if you want to know how well it works, see some of Willow's marvelous close-up shots posted on this board. the 6T costs about $50 from B&H Photo. of course, it does require an adapter ring like a Phayee or Pemaraal...

You can use Nikon 6T, Sigma or even Marumi Macro Set (62 mm). They work excellent!! However you will need Pheyee or Permaral adapter for 62 mm
