Well, I have been very happy with my Raynox 185Pro on an Olympus C-7070WZ.
I don't know what exactly you mean by 'poor borders'? I do get som CA on the borders
sometimes, and it does have quite a lot of flare, but the borders looks pretty sharp to
me. But then I don't have much to compare it to...
I believe that when using a conversion lens it depends a lot on the glass that is behind
the conversion lens, as opposed to a Sigma, Peleng etc where all the glass is in the les
itself..And the C7070 have good glass :)
