Olympus TCon-08 Wide Angle lens works very well with the FZ20 and a 62 mm adapter. Rear threads of TCON-08 are 62mm.

Go here for a good article.

I have the raynox .66 wide angle. they calim only.3% distrotion and it has very good resolution. no softening out of the center, no CA, buthen, it is a no zoom through at all or maybe a 1.5 zoom. Equivalent to a 24 mm.

With the TCON-08, what type of adapter do you need/use/recommend with it? Do you need a step-ring? I am really new to this, and I am looking to purchase a nice telephoto and a wideangle lens for my FZ20, but I'm still unclear on which set up works best. I tried going into two local photoshops with my camera to find a lens, and they told me that I had to get a 72mm lens straight from panasonic. I'm pretty sure that's not true, but any suggestions on a set up (with specific brands/models) would be much appreciated. I'm getting married in Jamaica in two weeks, and would love to come back with some great pics! :G

No step ring needed.
