Hello

I was about to get a "sky" filter for our FZ-10 until I saw some info on both of these adapters - Raynox RT5264P and the Pemaral PD62. We've got some (10) filters in 52mm and 55mm around and I'd like to use them. Is one "recommended" more than the other and for what reasons?

I've seen the Pemaral web site but where do you find this Raynox for the Panasonic? I haven't been able find one. I've seen the adapters for other cameras but not the Panny.



Thanks - Kenny J.

Ihavea Peramaal PD62 fitted to my camera which is used with 62mm filters, I also have a Yoshida adapter which is permanently fitted to my Sony VCL-HGD1758 lens.

Information on the Raynox range can be found here:-

The raynox adapters are now listed on jessops website but states that it takes 4-6 weeks to get it in. I bought the pemaraal and have to say that the service was second to none. It took only three days to arrive in the uk! Ican personally recommend this adapter and the service i received.

From my brief shopping experience for an adapter, I noticed that the Raynox adapter is metal whereas the Pemaral adapter is plastic. The Yoshida adapter is also metal, but costs a lot more than the Raynox model. A lot of FZ1 and FZ10 owners are very satisfied with the Yoshida adapters though, and rave about their customer service and quick shipping (all the way from Japan).

dumb question here ... I only saw a 64-52mm Raynox adaptor. But the Pamaraal is a 64-62mm ... so they're not really interchangable. Is there a 64-62mm Raynox out there??
