Default Buying accessories/FZ40

I'm having a terrible time tracking down sources for these accessories that work with my Pan FZ40:

Nikon TC-17ED teleconverter lens

Olympus TCON 17 " "

Panasonic DMW LT-55 " "

Any help would be appreciated!

You may be able to find them at KEH.com, or the used equipment sections of Adorama or B&H Photo. Not to mention ebay.

Thanks, I'll check out the first site. I've tried B&H, & Adorama; not the used sections however; as I'd prefer to buy one of these new.

Well, I must be describing these wrong; as I still cannot find them. Never have had a problem finding an item before.

As I mentioned, I wanted to get one of these teleconverters, new.

They will probably be listed as 'lens converters' and found under the specific manufacturer. some of them may have been discontinued.

Hmm, didn't realize that the Olympus & the Nikon were no longer avail. So I guess that means the Pan.

Hi csa,
I have tried in vain in Oz to find the Nikon and Oly without success.
Amazon USA have the LT55 for US$199 which is about $150 cheaper than I can purchase it here. Good luck. Cheers Lyn
