I am looking for a 62mm adapter for my new FZ20 and would appreciate feedback on any of the following if you have purchased them for your FZ20:

I Purchased a Pemaraal - PD62 adapter for my old FZ10 and have since upgraded to an FZ20 the adapter is well made and fits very well, and personally have had no problems with it.

Looks like the Pemaraal PD62 is outstock, anyone know why looks like most of the inventory is currently low?

Seems the PA62 would be good too, but it is also out of stock.

I ordered a second PA62 and there was nothing wrong with it except for a very tiny spec of missing black paint. It fits really well onto my FZ10 and looks the part and I saved some $$ too !

PS.

They delivered to me in the UK within 4-5 days !

HarjTT, when did you order yours cause the website indicates they are out of stock?

I got mine about 2 weeks ago apart from the seconds most other FZ adapters were out of stock - they had the PA62's which is what I wanted.

Hope that helps

So how did you decide on the PA62 instead of the PD62?

I just fancied the PA62 - all metal build, therefore more durable and thought it would go rather well with the camera. Also check Shene's website on the FZ10 - he's reviewed most lens adapters for the FZ and he made a comment on the PA62/PD62.

"In my opinion, both the PA and PD version are solid products; however, I prefer the PA version more than the PD version. If a metal barrel converter lens or filter is mounted on the PD version and used in high temperature environment, it is very likely that you have difficulty in taking the lens or filter off from the PD tube. "

I received the Phayee adapter a few weeks ago (via ebay) and basically have no complaints. It goes well with my FZ20 since it fits nicely and secure. I had noissue when I attached the 62mm UV filter (Promaster MC). The lens also fit nicely into the adaptor.

On thing I did notice that you will definitely need to add (or take along) the hood when shooting outside in bright conditions especially when shotting towards the sun. I realized this a bit too late during my weekend trip to one of the national parks here in Georgia. The Phayee did have the extended hood, I just for got to take it along. I recommend it.

One thing to note that the aluminum adaptor will add some weight to the camera. But it isn't that bad. Oh, I fogot to add that it is really nice to have the adaptor in place all the time of course. During the walk through the woods, the camera was dropped but everything was fine.
