Photos with Panasonic DMW-LTZ10 Teleconversion Lens on DMC-FZ10. Some photos had to be 640 x 480 to get to proper size.

Rookie, Those look very decent for telephoto. How was the light that day. Did you use a tripod or were they hand held? I am very close to ordering that very lens. How long have you had it? where did you get it? and what do you think of it so far?

A million questions,
smac

I got the lens the first week of January and this was the first time I ever used it. It was a rainy,overcast day. I would wait for the sun to start peeking out from the clouds and try to run outside and take a quick picture. All the shots areprobably auto setting and are hand held.

I really like the lens and am glad I bought the panasonic. I ordered it through video direct. It went on backorder and took 4 weeks, but was worth the wait.

Thanks Rookie,
For quick run outside when the sun peeks out shots they look really good.
I am psyched.
I will call Video Direct Monday and order mine.

Keep the samples comin'

P.S, Do you use the clamp thingy to attach your lens? Does it seem necessary for strength or security?

The clamp bracket is only used whenmounting to a monopod or tripod. Using the mounting hole in the bracket makes it balance better.

When taking hand held shots, I tend tohold the camera by the lens instead of the body. It attaches very securely and weighsa bit more than the camera as you can guess. I think you will be surprised at howlarge and heavy it is. But it works great.
