just found a weird bug thing with the fz5. If I put the lens adaptor on and a uv filter I get a black shadow spot with pictures using the flash if i am at full wide... if i zoom in to x1 it goes

and obviously if i take off the adaptor it goes

weird, its obviously the adaptor but i think i have put it on, but i thought id have heard someone else with a similar situation

anyone else get this?

It's a good point and I think everyonewhouses the flash with the adapter ongets this. If I'm going to be in a situation where I'm using the flash alot as the primarylight source, I take the adapter off. If it's just a fill flash or a little extra light, the shadow is negligible. Zooming in atadremoves itno matter what.

The adapter shadowing w/flash seems to be more pronouced when you're within 2-3' of the subject; not as noticible when further away. As Fred indicates, small amount of zoom takes you past this form of viginetting...
