Default LT55 Telephoto

Is this a worthwhile purchase for my FZ40, and in the future the FZ200?

Anyone have photos using it, compared to the full zoom of the camera?

Thanks!

Both me and Yuki we use it, the results are good, with the hose adapter that fits both on the FZ150 and FZ40, on FZ200 the adapter tube will be different.
The results are good, even if the legendary Nikon TC17ED are superior, but difficult to find on the market and very expensive!

Alex, would you happen to have a photo or two using it?

There was a bad forest fire across the lake from me, and I would loved to have more "reach" for photos.

Carol, I really like my LT-55, and of course it really helped that I found a used one on Adorama for $99!!!! Here 's a variety of my recent shots with the FZ150+LT55:

Oh my, Alex & Saly!!! I cannot believe the quality and sharpness using the LT55! Both of you have more than convinced me that I will be getting one next month.

What adapter would I need for my FZ40?

BTW, thank you both for taking the time to post these awesome photos for me to check out!
