lenses for panasonic

hi everyone, i recently bought an olympus tcon-17 teleconverter for my fz28 and i'm really pleased with it. i'm thinking of getting the raynox 150 or 250 for it. can anyone tell me if this would be worthwhile? i really want something that will allow me to get closer for more macro type shots. the fz28 only goes really close when zoomed right out to wide angle. with the teleconverter the minimum focusing distance is not as close. any advice appreciated. thanks, jacqui.

Re: lenses for panasonic

I use the raynox 250 with my panasonic fz28 and have had some nice results

You can check out my flickr macro page here:

I'm not the best photographer in the world, but you can get an idea of how well it does. Note not ALL of those shots were taken with the lens attached. I'm sure you can tell the ones that were.

With the fz28, I'd recommend using some sort of diffuser whether it be one homemade or whatever. And as with any camera, make use of all your flash options.
