Hei Provenzano use the LA5 adapter only to fit the conversion lens!!!

pag. 140 of the English Guide in pdf DMCFZ40-ADV.PDF here:

http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPER...MCFZ40-ADV.PDF



Using the Conversion Lens (optional)
With the optional conversion lenses, you can record even more faraway pictures and take close-up pictures of smaller subjects.
Refer to P144 for details.
Preparations: Remove the lens cap and lens hood.
Attach the lens adapter.
• Rotate the lens adapter slowly and carefully.
Attach the tele conversion lens.
A Lens adapter (DMW-LA5; optional)
B Tele conversion lens (DMW-LT55; optional)
• Close-up lens (DMW-LC55; optional) can be attached in a similar manner.
¢ The actual magnification when the zoom is used will be 1.7 times the display.
Zoom magnification when a lens is attached
(Max. number of pixels)
Recordable range when using a conversion lens Wide Tele
Tele conversion lens 12k-24k¢ 5.5 m (18.0 feet) to ¶
Close-up lens 4k-24k
18 cm (0.59 feet) to 50 cm (1.64 feet)
33 cm (1.09 feet) to 50 cm (1.64 feet)
Select [CONVERSION] on the [REC] menu. (P27)
• Refer to P144 for [CONVERSION].
Press 3/4 to select [ ], and then press [MENU/SET] to set.
• Set in same way to select [ ] too.
• Always set to [OFF] when the conversion lens is taken off.

Note
• Lens adapter (DMW-LA5; optional) is needed to use the conversion lens.
• MC protector (DMW-LMC52; optional) or ND filters (DMW-LND52; optional) cannot be used together with the conversion lens. Remove them before attaching the conversion lens.
• When there is dirt (water, oil, and fingerprints, etc.) on the surface of the lens, the image may be affected. Lightly wipe the surface of the lens with a soft, dry cloth before and after taking pictures.
• When using the tele conversion lens:
–We recommend using a tripod.
– The Stabilizer Function may not work sufficiently.
– The focus indication may light due to the jitter even if the subject is not focused.
– The time required for focusing may become longer than usual.

No... you need only 52mm filters that must go directly on your FZ45/40 lens, without LA5.

You have take the wrong dimension of filter, 55mm is not good for us , ask to a seller for a swap!!!

You could also get a step ring to make the 55mm filters fit the 52mm thread of the lens, do some looking on Amazon or ebay, you can find cheap step rings made of aluminium which are better than those made of plastic.

Also, the vignetting (the circle) will disappear if you zoom in.

When I was checking the above with my fz45, I noticed that the vignetting was not centered in the display.

Anyone else seen this with their camera?

OK Provenzano you can use the 52mm Hoya filter, that is very good, or take a step ring (55mm-52mm) as Square one suggest
