Default FZ10 adaptor

The Raynox RT5264P is available on Ebay for $15.95 + Shipping.
Received mine yesterday. has treads for 52mm lens/filters.
used my oly180 (ebay $10 ) for inexpense 1.7x teleconverter setup. Pretty good results although there is vignetting until 18x.

regards

That's not a bad price. I'd buy one but I've already got a 55 & 62mm Yoshida. With the 52mm opening, it seems like you would have to zoom out quite a bit to avoid vignetting. With the 62mm Yoshida and an Olympus TCON-14B, I can start shooting at just over 3x which means I would rarely have to remove the telephoto in the field.

Just curious, are the yoshida 55 and 62 mm adaptors made by
yoshida industy co. ltd. might be a common name in japan.

I had asked him that some months ago. He said it is a common name in Japan and he has no affliation with Raynox. He actually has a friend who makes the adapters. I've bought three of them so far.

Has anyone managed to get their hands on the Raynox adaptors? I'm sort of split between going for one of these Yoshida adaptors and buying my own filters, or trying to get the complete Raynox adaptor + protection/linear polarizer filter set. My biggest problems seems to be the UK stockist of Raynox doesn't currently carry that particular one.
