No treed . the FZ30 has a 55mm thread so you would need a 52-55mm ring

Treed - I goofed on that advice: See fmoore's post a few items back - it should be as Fred stated: "Actually you need a 55-52mm step down ring. Step ring diameters start at the camera end."

Narmer - the ring off a gas stove burner? :?

Sorry for the lack lustre shots with the 4T. I'll truly exercise some imagination and reward you for your help in participation and comments...I really had to hustle and get out of town for a quick trip, but as soon as I collect some zzzz's I'll wade thru my stuff for something better to shoot. I couldn't help but grap a quick shot to see how it worked and I D I D use a tripod, about 6X zoom, about 1 foot away (from front of lense) and Y E S the coin was the same hieght as the camera and stuck there with that sticky stuff you can use (kind of putty) for hanging posters etc. I am really impressed even with the quickie I tried. Best regards,

KennethD

I was just saying that since they're only $37 a piece ya know. But the higher the diopter won't I have to be careful of the the whole image not being in focus and vignetting? I heard someone saying that on some thread but maybe I'm wrong.

It's not uncommon to stack 2 cu lens. No vignetting. The higher the diopter power, the shallower the dofand, consequently,the focus distance is more limited, which makes ita little more difficult.

I wanted to but a second 6T for my FZ20, but then I took a 5T, which allows more focus distance. The magnification increases of about 30% more than with 6T alone (I thought it would increase of 50%). The quality remains practically the same

It seems the Nikon 4T and 6T are the close up lenses of choice here. I was leaning toward one of them, but then read about the Oly MCON-35, and it didn't seem to bad. Is this an older lens cause I can't find any up here in Canada. :O
