Default Lt-55

Does anyone have experience with this lens?

It seems pricey, wondering if its worth the money.

Gordy the TCON-17 from Olympus has just as good of IQ for a better price...buy from Amazon and use it for 3 weeks and see for your yourself...you can then return it if you don't care for it...I have all 3: TCon 17, LT-55 and the Nikon E17ED and I use them all the time...

i've used the lt55 with my fz28 & now with my fz35.
definately worth considering. extends range out to 826mm.
wondering if it will work with the fz40 & fz100.
maybe with a different adapter.

andygimma-

The FZ-40 and FZ-100 Have larger lens barrels.

sarah,
thanks for your reply.
went to the panasonic site.
they do list the lt-55 as compatible
with the fz40 & fz100.

I think you'll need the DMW - LA5 extension adapter.

FZ35 takes the DMW - LA3 extension adapter.

i was thinking something had to change because
of the longer zoom.
