P950 with Raynox DCR150 macro lens

I just received the Raynox DCR150 macro lens, and plan to use it with the P950 as well as the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000.

Appreciate any tips, and/or answers to couple of questions.

Hope to take it in the field soon - I can see there is considerable vignetting, but when you zoom in it goes away. I assume this is just the way it will work, correct?

Do you use the camera's macro/close-up setting when using the DCR150?

Normally I use auto-focus, but wondering if this lens might be a reason to use manual focus?

Hope I can get the hang of this fairly quick and improve my dragonfly, butterfly, insect photos.

Thanks for any ideas - appreciate it much.

Stay safe  - Ev
