Default FZ45 Tele Photo Conversion v Telephoto Lens

Hi can anyone tell me what the difference if any is between a tele conversion lens (FZ45 with Adaptor) and a 2x / 3x telephoto lens.
Could I buy either to attach to the adaptor LT55 or do I need the tele conversion.
Any Help would be appreciated

Welcome to the forum Bully306g
The DMW-LA5 is the adapter both for Macro Close up Lens (like DMW-LC55), and for tele conversion lens, like DMW-LT55.

Look also in your user guide.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by 2x/3x telephoto lens. Are you referring to an interchangeable lens for DSLR? That won't work on an FZ. You need to use the adapter tube with a teleconversion lens such as the LT55 or TCON-17.
