I can see why they needed to protect the camera from dust! They could have cleaned the camera up a bit before taking the pictures!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Chillgreg, I will have to look at getting one of those adapters.

Your solution is so butt-clenchingly good, I'd need to get quite anal to better you! Still, I'll let it slide this time, I'm sure it'll come out in the wash...

Why not just use the DMW-LA3 lens adapter, which allows 55mm filters (and lens caps)?

Great idea matey. As I've only just got my TC, I'll have to give it a try, sounds good in principle. I think it might vignette ate 25mm though, the guys idea has a wider cross section due to the multiple adaptors.

The LA3 was specifically designed for the FZ (18-35) and should not cause any vignetting. But, I can't say for sure since I don't have one. The reason I'm saying it though, is because I had the Sony adapter for the H1 and that did not cause any vignetting at all. Usually the problem arises when you stack up stepping rings, filters and add converters on top of them.
