Is the Raynox HD-2200PRO-LE 2.2x a good Tele?

Anyone use this telephoto lens? It is threaded for 37mm so I was thinking of getting it for my HV10.

Is Raynox a good quality lens?

The 10x zoom on the HV10 just isn't enough when I'm out in the weeds trying to get some nice close shots of the Wildlife.

I've been very pleased with both the Raynox wide-angle converters I've tested and I do believe they're a reputable accessory lens manufacturer. But I have to admit I've never used their powerful telephoto converters, though do like the way their site gives you real examples of how the images look from their lenses.

If you do buy the tele converter you won't be able to zoom back far before the image vignettes, and of course you'll need a really sturdy tripod with a nice head to control the wobbles.
