I have a Pemeraal adapter with 55mm threads on the front to which is a Hoya UV filter which also has 55mm threads on its front. Is it advisable to remove the UV filter before mounting my Tcon 1.7 or can I leave it on with satisfactory results? Thanks in advance for any help.

You can leave it on. When I use a polarizer with my tele I also use this location.

Theoretically, you want to get the converter and camera lens as close as possible. Realisitcally, that added 3mm thickness of the the uv filtermakes little if any noticeable difference. In the case of the tcon17 it may be vital to use the uv filter rather than the adapter to better accept the tcon17 shallow threads.

1- Filters were never designed to hold TC connected to their front thread.

2- A UV is neutral and used as a lens protector at attitudes below 3,000 feet.

3- So why bother and why risk a filter thread blowout and a lost TC.

4- Think Insurance

Dwssas, when I was using an FZ1 if the supplied lens barrel adapter, I used the UV filter so the TCON-17 would fit better. Now that I have Yoshida Adapters for both my FZ1v2 and FZ20, I take off the UV filter when using other accessories like the TCON-17. I"ve herad that it is best to minimize the glass between the subject and the CCD.

Enjoy life!

Gospel I received my Tcon 1.7 today and hooked it up both ways. Both seemed secure in my opinion. I think I will remove the filter thereby removing unecessary glass. Thanks to all who responded.
