    Default Raynox Wide Angle Converter

    HI
    I bought the Raynox Wide Angle to use with my Leica V Lux 1.
    The resolution is OK. BUT the four corners are "curved" in.
    In this sense, not so good.

    How do I attach a print onto this message ?

    HI
    Not sure if this is a feature in Wide Angle converters.
    I have an 18mm Leica and it does NOT have the corners "curved" and "darkened".
    Very slight distortion.

    I am looking at the Leica V Lux 1 and Leica D Lux 3?

    What is your experience with V Lux 1 an how does it compare to D Lux 3.

    Hi
    No experience with D Lux 3.
    That's the one with "new" lenses, right ?
    Had decided against it because it means another set of lenses !
    I currently have the M6 and the R4.
    Thought of M8 but from the discussions in Leica forum, appears to be unstable with all sorts of compliants. As I needed one rather badly, decided on V lux 1

    eh i think you should consider what is the purpose of getting the cam 1st...
    they both serve pretty different style of shooting

    Hi
    Thought you were referring to M8.

    Was thinking of using my current M lenses on the M8 But because of
    the feedback on the instability of the M8, decided on V lux 1
