Very nice shots. I am thinking of buying a FZ7 soon to augment my FX01. I am using a Raynox DCR-250 macro lens with it and a Hoya R72 infrared filter, both of which I assume will work with the FZ7. Thanks for sharing.

Mrclean,

Glad to hear you are enjoying your FZ7. I'm really happy I upgraded from my old FZ3 to this camera when it came out. I have been acquiring things for a few years, even for my FZ3 so here is my kit;
  • Pemaraal FZ7 adapter (well worth getting) [/*]
  • Raynox DCR-150 and 250 (Macro) [/*]
  • Nikon T3 (Macro) [/*]
  • Raynox DCR-6600 (WA .66) [/*]
  • Olympus C-180 (1.7x Tele) [/*]
  • Ricoh TM-200 (1.5x Tele) [/*]
  • Vivitar DF200 (Slave flash) [/*]
  • Folding Flash bracket[/*]
All of these items work from pretty darn good to excellent with the FZ7. The best part is many of them are very affordable, the DCR-6600 was the most expensive but still less then 100.00 on ebay.

Hope this helps.

-Brett

52mm as is the Pemaraal one. The Pemaraal one is 1mm shorter and aluminum. The stock unit will cause vignette with the DCR-6600 but could be sanded down to get it 1mm closer. FMoore has done that with adapters for other FZx cameras with good success.

P.S. you can also get a panasonic 55mm tube or a 55mm tube from Pemaraal if you like the lens selection in the 55mm size better.
