Default Waiting for DMW-LT55

Dear fellow travelers, last night I ordered online the Panasonic LT55 teleconverter.
I did a lot of research here from Italy (TCON-17 compared to the price of the DMW-LT55) and the best price and the greater security of purchase I found on Amazon.uk
Should arrive by March 28, and I will definitely ask for technical advice to the forum friends here who are already using this TC

Congratulations Alex! You are going to be very happy with it. I think it is a very good quality lens. I have had good luck taking bird shots, which I enjoy very much. I can't wait to see your shots!!

Excuse you until you've answered John!
Need an adapter such as the LC55 macro lens, the attack is 55 mm in diameter and is well suited for the LT55 Teleconverter, called DMW-LA5 and is good for modell FZ40/45 FZ47/48 FZ100/150.

I sincerely hope that you too can appreciate this type of lens mate!
