Got a Quantaray UV Haze filter. 72mm screws into the existing FZ20 adapter.

I wonder if there is a lense cap that will fit over the filter?

Anyone know?

Found 72mm snap in lense cap $3.79, and stick on lense cap leash $1.99.

With the $24.99 I paid for the UV Haze filter, I now have full protection for this great lense for less than $33.00.

Dont have to worry about dust getting in the lense, scratches, damage from bumping the extended lense, and it has UV Filtering.

And... If I scratch the filter, it's a lot cheaper than scratching the lense.

THIS IS GREAT!!!

I have the raynox adapter and 55mm step ring for my tcon17. Now all I need is the fz20 which should be here next week. Others at dpreview who have used the rt5264p with the fz10/20 have said there is no more vignetting with it than with larger diameter adapters. The tcon17 vignetts with the fz10/20below ~6x zoom.

Why not just use the adapter that comes with the fz20 and get a 72mm filter and lense cap?

Cost... Actually its a significan question with add on lens (macro, telephoto) rather than with things like a UV filter.

Not only thehigher cost of 72mm filters/converters, the stock adapter puts the add-on lens more than 1 inch away from the extended fz20 lens. The 3rd party adapters put the add-on lens as close as possible. A much better arrangement.
