Clint-

I just got back from doing photo seminars. Yes, I also have a generic adapter. My is done by Bower, but they all are metal and seem to work just fine.

With one of these attached can you still use the camera at 27mm or do you have to take them off to go that wide?

You "can" leave adapter on but you will get vignetting if you take a picture in the lowest "unzoomed".

Just zoom in notch or two and you can't see it.

Smarter camera folks- please correct me if I'm wrong.

Note that the camera has specific settings for "T" Conversion and "C" Conversion under Menu...go up instead of down Menu two steps and you will be on the Conversion Sub Menu...select "C" for Macro Converter LC-55 or "T" for Tele Converter LT-55...you do not have to do this but this allows the camera to keep you from vignetting as it will zoom the lens out and maintain that zoom or more to eliminate vignetting...and will not allow you to go any wider...

LTZ, Is that the only thing that this conversion setting does. I can't find much info on it in the manual.
