Hi,

Who knows what kind of connection the TCON-17F would need to adapt with FZ18?

Thanks,

Sergio

Hi Daniell,

I bought a TCON17F (it appears a wrong purchase). The standard Panasonic's adapter don't accept the "F".

Thanks
Sergio

I do not know if you saw this or just ignored it or I am wrong......but OLy seems to call the threads on the F lens propriotory 33mm threads but they also say 34mm will work........so if you can find a 55 to 34mm stepdown ring it should work but I would still return the lens.

Hi Genece,

You are not wrong. When I received the TCON-17F I noted that it was 33mm (I thinked it was 55mm) and, after consulting Oly site, I saw this is a proprietary lens. Do you know if exists a stepdown ring 55 to 33mm?

Yours comments in dpreview forum are a good class of digital photo.

Thanks a lot
Sergio

Sergio, I think you bought the wrong teleconverter... It should be just tcon 17 (not with an F).
