Yes, a 55mm adapter from any of the vendors listed at this site:

http://www.cs.mtu.edu/~shene/DigiCam/

When youget to the page click FZ10 on the left side. FZ10 and FZ20 adapters are the same.

Thanks Playlong for your answer. If I buy the Raynox 5264adapter I have to buy a ring 52-55 too. Is there an adapter to put the TC directly in the camera?:?

Thanks.

The Raynox is a 52mm adapter. You need a 52mm to 55mm step up ring. one of the most popular is the phayee 62mm adapter. A62mm to 55mm stepdown ring is required. the phayee can be purchased on ebay.



edit

I did a lot of searching before I bought an adapter and did not find any 55mm.

Yoshidamakes the 1055 adapter; 55mm for fz10/15/20. That's really your best bet to get the tcon17 as close as possible.

Yes mine will be available the last week of March, it will support 52, 55, 58 and 62mm without step rings. BTW the finish on the production piece will be like the bottom. I do not know $$ yet.
