Does anyone know of any good fisheye lens for the FZ35? I have checked all over the internet, but I havent seen any that has been reviewed yet.

Another amateur question. What is the point of a conversion lens adaptor?

Hope to hear back from someone.

Youd like to have more wide angle? Or do you like the fish-eye effect?

This gives you a much wider angle, but dont expect the quality to be as high as without it;http://cgi.ebay.nl/55mm-0-45x-Wide-Angle-Lens-for-Panasonic-DMC-FZ30-FZ50-/180487022652?pt=UK_CamerasPhoto_CameraAccessories_CameraLensesFilters_JN&hash=item2a05dd683c

Then youre looking at this one: http://cgi.ebay.nl/UK-46mm-0-45x-WIDE-A ... 56388c96fa

thanks for the reply Ruben. I am looking for a lens that produces the fisheye effect. Just wondering but does the wide angle lens do that?

The wide-angle lens gives a much wider field of view (if Im right it's 27mm x,45) so it's a really wide field.
If it doesnt give you a fish eye effect, then you could load the photo in photo edit software.
But for that 20 euros, I think you could give that lens a try.

Remember that ''lens'' isnt a real Zuiko! It's just a non-brand Zuikos.

ive heard that its not a legit brand but i took advantage of the price and purchased it anyway just to try it out. the lens came in yesterday and its working pretty well actually. the product seems to be well made.

i appreciate your input though Ruben. im still a beginner so hope you can give me some more tips in the future.
