Hope you see this Normcar as you are the only person I know who has the DMW-LTZ10!

This particular lens is listed as an accessory for the forthcoming FZ20 which has a different adapter than the FZ10.

Can you tell us how the lens is fitted to the FZ10 does it use a special adapter?

Also I assume the rear of the lens is threaded, can you tell us what the thread size is as looking at the pictures that have been posted of the FZ20 it would appear that the lens screws directly into the FZ20's adapter although I could be wrong!

I have tried searching for the specifications of the lens but have seen nothing technical about the lens posted anywhere.

Cheers - Harryo

Just as a follow-up to my previous message, I have just downloaded the FZ20 manual (PDF file) from Panasonic USA site and it answers my questions in relation to the Panasonic telephoto lens.

From this page (btw does it count as a commercial link?):

http://www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs...tGroupId=14845

The FZ10/15/20 share the same wide and tele conversion lenses. So probably FZ10 can use the FZ15/20's lotus style lens hood as well.

You would have to use the FZ20's adapter in order to use the Panasonic 'petal' shaped lenshood.

There are some illustrations in the FZ20 manual which shows the adapter and lenshood plus how the filters fit to the adapter.

Sorry have no idea on best price for the DMW-LTZ10.

Did a quick check on Google and prices did not appear to be discounted, could be due to the fact that the lens is a rarity at the moment.

Once they are in plentiful supply the prices may drop.

In Hong Kong the telephoto lens is selling for $HK2980. I was planning on getting one for my FZ10, thinking I could use it on the FZ20 if I decidedit was worth upgrading to. I didn't realise it needed an adapter. Does the adapter come with the camera or is it another optional extra?

The DMW-LTZ10 doesn't need an adapter.

I bought a LTZ10 for my FZ10; its adapter is part of the body of the lens. Panasonic states that the LTZ10 fits on the FZ10-15-20, so my understanding is that the adapter of the FZ20 will have to be removed in order to screw the LTZ10 into place.

Unfortunately, the LTZ10 does not have any thread at the front end, so no way to add any kind of filter to it. Otherwise it's a little bit heavy, but the quality is great. I join one hand-held photograph taken with it (reframed at 50%).
