Re: Raynox M-150 or M-250 Macro for FZ200 ?

I use the M-150 on my FZ200 with a 52-43mm step down ring.

I recommend it as it gives excellent results once you are used to getting the working distance right, about 8in or 200mm from the front of the M-150.

At that working distance it is fairly easy to use flash without having to resort to a ring flash system. I use the built in flash with a cheap clip-on diffuser.

I assume you are aware that the 8in is the maximum distance from the lens that you can focus.

It works well over the zoom range 3X to the full 24X. Below 3X you get serious vignetting.

I haven't tried a M-250, but for me I think it would be too powerful and the shorter working distance of 5in or 125mm would be less convenient.

I actually find that the M-150 is too powerful for outdoor nature work, so I also use a Nikon 3T 1.5 Dioptre, working distance 26in or 670mm.

If I was buying again I think I would choose a Canon 500D 2 dioptre lens which would cover all my needs.

This example was taken using the Nikon 3T at full zoom on the FZ200.

Hope that all helps.
