Default FZ150 & TCON-17x (1020mm) Test, Motorsport Photos

Here are some shots taken with the FZ150 & TCON-17x at the V8 Supercars at Phillip Island. This was my first time out with this combination and I am happy with the results (Image quality).

TCON-17x is a Olympus 1.7x teleconverter which can be used on the DMW-LA5 lens adaptor to give the FZ150 a 1020mm focal length (35mm equivalent)

Default Step-Up Adapter Ring

Hi,

have you needed some ste-up or step down adapter ring?

Thanks.

You need to use the Panasonic DMW-LA5 Lens Adapter which screws in to the camera body then TC screws in to the 55mm thread on the end.
You can buy cheap generic ones on eBay which are a lot cheaper than the Panasonic ones.

Great shots with the TCon, TG! Eysha, since you already have LT55 which has the same magnification (1.7x), you don't need the TCon17
