Sorry, Idle, but that sony wa doesn't seem to work very well with the fz20. See http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...ssage=12058163for some discussion and a link to recent shots with the fz20 and raynox dcr6600.

Nick - Backordered? Bummer.:sad:

Yes, that Raynox looks better -- but I've not really worked my way through the setup yet.

Besides, I already had the Sony -- bought it for a camcorder in 1986.

Have the matching tele-extender somewhere -- just can't think what I did with it.

Tell me about it. I wish it would have stated that on their (etronics) site or I would have bought it elsewhere. I sent them a crap-o-gram, for what it's worth. No excuse for showing something in-stock when it's not in this day in age.

See if this one looks better.

Did what computer users mostly don't: RTFM.

This told me the FZ20 has a setting for conversion lenses, which does seem to improve things a bit, plus I retook the shot from about 30 feet away (hence the front fence.)

If you like the vignetting effect, this is nice.

Here's some I just took from the back doorstep -- no post editing other than resize (convert JPG to PSD, resize, save as JPG again.)

Wet evening, just about sunset, same Sony W/A.

The next two are zoomed in -- no vignetting.

Here's the last one -- my ADSL line dropped out, which it has a habit of doing lately.
