This is WIDEST WITH RAYNOX DCR 6600 WIDE ANGLE CONVERTER. (minor vignetting in upper left corner cloned out. The square approximates the widest field of view of the camera lens at its widest without the teleconverter...)

Looks good and no fishyeye look to the max digital zoom.

What did you do in PS 7 to these pictures besides resize.

Colors look good but not natural if you know what I mean.

Could a picture without the WA converter be displayed?

That telephone pole on the right looks like it has a hard lean to the left but I think it is like that without the WA converter.

Oh... sorry, should have mentioned. Put them through the "landscape" process. Fugi Velvia profiles + light sharpening. The Raynox is a good teleconverter, I am pleased with it. Limited barrel distortion but it does get soft around the edges at wider apertures, low light and when you zoom through. Good daylight, at f 5.6 and above at full wide? None better. It buys you "meaningful" space, as illustrated above.

That second shot is impressive. Just for comparison, can you take the same shotsw/ and w/o the 6600 attached all in the same time frame so there is no exposure/light difference. No need for the digital zoom. 4 shots: 2 at1x w/ and w/o 6600; 2 at 12x zoom w/ and w/o 6600. The house is a good study. This lens is looking bettter and better.

Tom, the third photo is without the WA converter. It's the camera lens alone at its widest. The telephone pole is crocked, it's not barrel distortion. The distortion factor of the Raynox is -1.3. Excellent.

I will. This was a spur of the moment thing I did this morning while I was walking the dog. I altered the settings to take the digital zoom shot to get a clear shot without camera shake. More tests to follow (but not today...)
