Lots of you have bought a FZ10 or 20 Recently and need Adaptor / Lens help ?

I compiled this FZ10-20.FAQ.text in a zip.. to download
covering most aspects with links/pics that i used to choose my Adaptor/Lens..
it wont tell you what to buy, but by looking here you will have a better idea

Huge Thnx to evryone who contributed to my knowledge and fun..
hope it helps you ALL.


Adaptor info
============
What is an Adaptor ?
http://www.cs.mtu.edu/~shene/FORUM/F...D62-ring-s.jpg
Remove the Pana ring..
http://www.cs.mtu.edu/~shene/FORUM/F...ring-off-s.jpg
then add adaptor (Pemaraal PA62)
http://www.cs.mtu.edu/~shene/FORUM/F...-PD62-on-s.jpg

So why use a 62mm Adaptor instead of the Pana 72mm Adaptor supplied ?

Nothing stopping you using the supplied Pana 72mm adaptor + 72mm Filter
but a 72mm filter is more money.. and if you want to use any other lens at a later date most are 62mm or smaller threads this can cause vignetting (dark corners on images) and step down ring problems.. and the cost of..
so buying a 62mm adaptor + 62mm filter in the future makes sense.

PA62 is Aesthetically pleasing too

WHATEVER YOU CHOOSE PROTECT THAT LENS PLZ HAVE A UV FILTER IN PLACE..

Adaptor and Lens links follow in the txt file..

Sad part is due to manufacturing problem, the PA62 and PD62 has been delay for awhile.

I had the peramaal adapter, then I got the Phayee. The Phayee is so far superior. The difference is like shooting a bullet or throwing it! I do have the plastic one from Peramaal, though. But it almost seems like a guy with good equipment was making them out of his basement. It works, and does the job, don't get me wrong. But the Phayee adapter seems like it is just part of the camera. It is a very professional product. Plus it comes with a 72mm tube adapter which is so helpful. And if you unscrew that and just have the first part of the Phayee, you can shoot with the on camera flash and don't get a shadow over the bottom of the photo (which you get with both the Peramaal and the supplied Panasonic). There really is no comparison. And I believe they are about the same price.
