Great shots. I particularly like the composition and OOF effect caused by the foreground leaves of the 5th shot. Great colors...it just comes to show that Panasonic cameras are not as desaturated as people believe. It can produce Oly-type colors.

Thanks Tullio.

I'm definitely happy with the colours produced by the FZ40, especially in strong light.

Default hi

I have a fz40 and i am looking for a cpl filter and was wondering do you need a lens adapter for the filter to prevent vignetting or can you just put it on.

Alexander-

As the use of a single filter does not add much weight, it could be mounted directly on the lens. That location will require a 52mm filter size. When more weight is involved, such as mounting a TC or teleconverter, the LA5 lens adapter is used.

In terms of vignetting; I find if there are 2 filters on there it will vignette a little at widest angle. Easy to crop out later or increase lens length a little. I had 2 filters on for these (UV and CPL), both were quite cheap 52mm eBay items. I'd rather deal with a little vignette than be taking the UV filter on and off.
