The "cheap" Hoya +3 is a single opticle element lens. It will give good clear focus at the center but go soft towards the edges. The dual element lens such as the olyb-macro and nikon 4t and 6t" flatten" the focus to give good clear focus to the edges. Much preferred. The raynox dcr250 is a 3-element lens and does a fantastic job of getting clear focus throughout at +8 diopter. An amazing little lens for $50. The opteka 10x is an even more powerful lens (+10 diopter)utilizing 4 elements. I dont have that one. The problem with the more powerful lens is extremely shallow depth of field. Reducing the zoom will increase the dof but of course also decreases the magnifiation. See original of fly shot at http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=23

Not that it is a issue with me until you try shooting low light action shots, but this FZ5 shows much better noise suppression (or control)than the other FZ's.

Just my observations from what you have posted which are very nice and a great way to show someone on the fence whether to buy this gem or not.

Except for not being able to do IR this beauty is like a FZ1v2 on 'roids.

Greats posts.
