Default Panasonic FZ10 with Olympus B-300

Has anyone tried using the Olympus B-300 Teleconverter lens with the FZ10? The B-300 has a 55mm thread, but I don't exactly know what size of thread the FZ10 has.
The FZ10 seems like a great camera and am cosidering upgrading from UZI 2100.

Default FZ10 lens..

I believe it has a 72 mm lens. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong. Not sure if the discrepancy would create a lot of vignetting. I'm thinking of replacing my C2100, too. So far I am truly impressed with this camera! Most of the photos have been great!

Ernst Leitz would be rolling in his grave at that suggestion.

Default New tube for FZ10

Go here and scroll to the bottom for photos of a tube for attaching generic lens that should be available before too long... The B300 or the TCON17 will screw directly into it without any step rings...
