I can hook up the Canon 2.4X lens to my FZ20 and get no vegnetting at 12X zoom but am unable to get the cam to focus. I have set the in cam setting to tele-tried to focus manually-and tried multiple other settings. Can anyone offer any suggestions or is this just not a compatible set up? The only reason I am trying this is because I had the tele lens from another camera. Thanks for any help.

How far away was the subject you used for focusing? A 1.7X converter has a minimum focusing distance of about 207" = 17.25 feet. A 2.4X lens will require perhaps more than 20 feet. See my FZ-10 user guide, especially the "Do You Really Need a Tele Converter? "for more details.

Thanks for your response. I tried your suggestion but to no avail. I think that this set up with the old A-60 tele 2.4 tele converter and the very small opening on the lens will not work period. I guess the TL-55 is my best bet.
