I received my fz20 a week ago and have been reading on how and what to buy to attach my tcon 17 to the camera. The more I read the more confused I become.

Could someone please tell me just what I need to make the tcon fit the fz20.

I am an older person and have read and re-read the posts and have learned a lot, but I am so afraid I will buy the wrong thing.

Thanks in advance.

Hi annyjune, Welcome to the forums.
Just from reading the post around here, seems that the Phayee adapter is the one most people like, then the Pemaraal is a close second. You will need one of these adaptor and a step down ring to bring the 62 mm threads down to the 55mm threads of the tcon17
The Phayee comes from china and you can find it on ebay or just email RongJin at: rongjin@phayee.com
The Pemaraal can be found here http://www.b-300.com/fz10ac.html I think it is made here in the USA
After you get to the site go down two or three pictures and you will see the adaptor they recomend for the tcon17.
Both companies offer the step down ring you will need.

Also take a look at this post. http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...07&forum_id=23 If you havn't seen it, it might be just what you are looking for. Hope this helps out.

From what I read the TCON17 causes slight vignetting, so if that's the lens you want I would get the Phayee adapter (it's smaller in the sense that the filter is closer to the lens than the peramaal). And on the Peramaal website (pge listed above) if you scroll down to the bottom on the left is the 62-55mm converter which is very thin. This should minimize the vignetting. I have the Raynox lens and haven't used it yet, but I came across this post and it compares lenses, you might want to take a look before buying a lens:
