I'm looking into the Oly TCON 17 and Pana LT 55 for my FZ50

CK's Digitlal rated the Oly TCON 17 above the Pana

Need feedbacks from end-users of the above before I decide which one to get

Thanks

I used the TCON 17 with my FZ20 and tried it on the V-LUX 1 or FZ50 and it workedjust as well.I love that lens. It's light weight and will screw right onto the camera threads. I got mine on e-bay for $80.00 but they sometimes go for more...........Don

I have the TCON-17 and have used it with my FZ-30 for half a year or so. I think it is a good quality lens and cann be bought new for around 100.00$ american. I got mine at B&H . Amazon has them also for 100.00$. It is a much better price than Panasonics tele and just as good from the test results I have seen. If you do a search there was a link to a test in a thread a few months back on this site.
