Can anone who owns a Z3 advise as to wether the Z2 and Z3 lenses are the same Diameter? I don't mind about length differences, as Cokin do step up and step down spacers, although any advice on how much longer it is would be useful, as I don't want fish eye or barelling effects!



Thanks to anyone who can help me, My Z3 arrives monday (hopefully) and I need it before south america!

Judging from the photos, it seems that the Z3 has a bigger diameter lens than the Z1/Z2 and also the wide angle adapter kit has a different part no., so I guess we will have to cough up again for the adapter tube!

Thanks for the reply.



Isn't it always the way! What's wrong with standardising things, or at least releasing the camera AND accesories at the same time!



If I manage to find a solution for this, or if anyone else does, I'll post it on here.



If you find a good solution, please post it for all. D*mn release dates!

ALLEGEDLY. And DON'T hold me to this! lol



46.5-55mm. BUT I don't know how long it is. apparently the lens comes out 32mm (the Z2 is 300mm) but until I get hold of one, i can neither confirm, nor deny!





keep on postin'!
