Default FZ28 + Raynox ring light?

Is there a ring light that's compatible with the Raynox macro lenses? The commercial lights I've seen online don't seem to have a large enough ID to accommodate the OD of the Raynox snap-on lenses, which means light would be blocked by the Raynox mounting ring.

Also, since the Raynox lenses require an adapter tube with the FZ28, are there any ring lights with female threads to accept these lenses? The MSN lenses have no front threads, so the ring light would necessarily mount at the rear of these.

You can check the Raynox web site. They will tell you what adapter you need for each of their converters. Assuming you have either the DCR-150 or DCR-250 (both are macro converters), they should simply snap on the Panasonic converter DMW-LA3 (see eBay link below where you can buy this adapter - there are cheaper ones on eBay if you search for it).


From the Raynox site:

DCR-250 Super Macro/Close-Up lens
You can simply "Snap On" DCR-250 Super Macro lens onto the filter threads of DMW-LA3 Lens Adapter.(Shooting distance from the object ;109mm in maximum telephoto macro mode.)
Panasonic DMW-LA3 lens adapter is required for use with the DCR-250 + Lumix DMC-FZ38, FZ35, FZ28, FZ18 camera.
