I think I'm going to try and go with the Panasonic lens. B&H, along with everyone else seems to be on national back order. I did call Panasonic. It was a very frustrating call. It litrally took me 5 minute's to get the person on the phone to understand the part # for what I wanted. He did say they had them. But frankly, I couldn't understand what he was saying so I hung up just to call back and hopefully talk to someone else. When I called back, Igot shuffled around on the phone and then they where closed. :evil: Oh well, I'll try again today.



BTW...Nice shot's guy's.

IMHO some of the images posted from the Pana tc (DMW-LTZ10) have been good and some have been questionable, so I think the jury is still out. The price, compared to other tc's being used, is somewhat exorbitant and its weight is the greatest also. Images posted I have seen have not overriden those to factors in my eyes yet.
I also feel the cost is not the only price you pay when using it. It is dimensionaly the biggest, has no front threads to add filters and because the 'adapter tube' is part of it, filters can not be added behind the rear element either. When you want shots under 6x that show no vignetting, it (along with the built in adapter tube) has to be removed leaving the extended lens system unprotected. And to then use any filters you would have to carry another adapter to screw on, to mount them. Not the most usefully effecient of all the tc's being used. Just my 2 pence.
