I noticed there are a few models of the WCON-08, 08B, 08D ect. Which one would one buy if going with the WCON lens?

digicamfan - Sorry for the misunderstanding. As I stated right off the bat "The wcon08 works fine. It just isn't wide enough to bother with IMO." If your happy with 28mm, be happy. I'm happy with 24mm.

Cwood,

Before you take fmoore's pronouncement on WCON-08 as "gospel", I suggest you check out my thread where I tested it on my new FZ30.:idea:

Go here to see the comparisons:

http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=23

I did not move in my stance with the WCON-08 but I got about one more bridge section in width with it! That = 50% wider in my layman's eyes! Grins...

I LOVE the WCON-08 on my FZ30. At full wide even with 55mm UV filter + 55-62 stepup ring I have no vignette.
I have heard that you need to use a thin step up with wide angle lens. Who makes one or what diameter do I need?
