has anyone ever heard of this brand before? i wonder, for the price, if it's any good... a 3x teleconverter would give the FZ enough power to count the whiskers on a cat from a hundred yards away!

Hey squirl,
I checked out the link. I have never heard of or seen that teleconverter before and I am pretty suspicious of the add. The picture of the before and after 1. doesn't look like a 3x enlargement to me and 2.my gut feeling is that this falls into the "if it's seems to good to be true, than it probably is" category. I would think that at 3x the lenses would have to be pretty amazing to not have major aberrations or vignetting problems. But that's just my guess.
BTW I tried to explain about that plugin a little better on my other post. :lol:

All the best,
smac

i agree, Smac, that's why i asked... i'd hate to shell out cash for something that turned out to be junk... and i'd guess a GOOD 3x telecon would probably cost about three times what that one does! mind you, it'll be a while before i worry about that... the 12X zoom will keep me busy for some time all by itself! :-)
