Hi POL,
Honestly I don't have much experience with this product. I know that bundle is convenient to buy for users, however most of these items are bad quality. I would suggest buying reputable brand name (like Panasonic, Olympus, Nikon, and
Canon) at www.adorama.com. This store has a variety of good products (used & new) whatever you prefer. I hope my answer solves your question.

Vivitar is not an unknown company but with such a low price for all these things i think too that it must be low quality.

I agree with UJ and Geoper, these type of deals or packages are not high quality products and as such you will probably be disappointed by the results of the add on lenses. What they tend to do is throw together a range of lenses, coloured filters (to change the colour of your shots), tripod, bag cleaning brushes, blowers and clothes etc because they find that these items wont sell on their own - so they group them together to make you think you are getting a bargin, when most of what you buy in the package you do not need or want.

Think of it as buying a Porche and then putting the wheels from a Renault Twingo on it. It wont give you the same result.

For my Panasonic camera, I have only brought the Panasonic leses and adapter tube. The only other ones I would consider buying and brand names as suggested in a previous reply.

Hope this helps.

I have seen packages like this offering accessories that are not compatible, like an external flash for an FZ-40. Be very careful.

Like the others said you will find out that some of these items will not be used, i recommend you to keep taking pictures with no additional accessories and if you find something that you like on the way, then buy it separately.
You can find decent prices for quality products and start building your "collection". For basic start you can take a cleaning kit but not the one for dslr cameras (that clean the sensor and everything) and a carrying bag. Everything else will come according to the style of your photography.
