Which one do you suggest as a good one to start off with and screw on directly to the fz200 without an adapter?

I'd start off with 52mm Canon 500D, it has an interesting focal range range of 35-55cm at medium to higher zoom levels, that's good for a lot of macro situations.

Then maybe later a Canon 250D for the lower range up to 25cm, and maybe a (cheap!) Sigma Achromatic lens to expand to further away.

Anyway, if you get two inexpensive adapter rings 52-49mm and 52-55mm you'll be fine for most of the lenses to come ...

Amazon is showing that one for about 88.00 or so. Does that sound about right?
