A search of this forum turned up the info that fz3 adaptors are not compatible with the fz5. The included fz5 adaptor is plastic and I m leery of using it for a teleconv lens, which I wish to purchase.

Are there currently any metal ones available for the fz5? Or is it possible that I might get away with the plastic one? So far I am leaning towards the Raynox 1540.

Right now there is no adapter metal adapter available. There may be a Yoshida adapter in the future.

What is different on the lense threads that the FZ3 and FZ5 aren't interchangeable?

Troop... the FZ3 and FZ4/5 have a different mounting system for the adapter which is not a thread. The two systems are also different between the FZ3and FZ5. Yoshida is the only metal adapter for the FZ3 and he is still working on the FZ5. Here's a link with some pics and an explanation from Fred Moore.
