        Be warned that your depth of field will be *very* shallow when using this lens, but the quality of the optics and ease of use is fantastic. As much as I like extension tubes, I like using this lens better for macrophotography.

              Comments about Raynox MSN-202, 37mm, Super Macro/Close-Up Lens:

              I'm using this in conjunction with a 100mm canon macro and an mpe-65mm. As well as with an lX3.

              The adapter seems to work best on the LX3 or cameras where you can change the magnification based on the focal length (ie. zoom lenses). There is good centre sharpness with little fall off towards the corners.

              On the mpe unfortunately the working distance is extremely small, so tight in fact that at the 9X magnification it is nigh impossible to get the sufficient lighting necessary.

              On the canon 100 it makes a nice addition and is certainly a cheaper alternative to get greater magnifications if you don't already have the mpe.

              This item is probably best suited to those with zoom lenses desiring to make forays into macro without paying the high price of a macro specific lens. The quality of the optics of Raynox adapters are first rate however.

              Comments about Raynox MSN-202, 37mm, Super Macro/Close-Up Lens:

              I bough this product be able to discover a new world with my FZ35 and
              It is really fascinating the power of the macro lens and the good quality of the lens it is also very easy to adapt in the camera and so light that you can carry it out when you have to travel.

              The only problems are the difficulty to focus and the limit of DOF that I found with my camera and is imperative to have a tripod to have a sharp and focus picture and patient because any movement change the hole focus, also is need a ring flash or a diffuser because some times you can not have enough light.

              Even that the results so far has been very good and I'm very please with my new toy.

              Comments about Raynox MSN-202, 37mm, Super Macro/Close-Up Lens:

              Very easy to use - it just clips on, and gives really nice super enlargements. Even though the description says "for Olympus C-series", the universal mount would work with most any SLR lens. I use it with my Canon T1i and 75 - 300 zoom lens, and it works great. I'm a little concerned about how long it will last (especially the threads) since it's all plastic, but I really like it so far. The smallish objective lens means it needs good light, but works fine outside during the day, or inside with supplemental light.
