I found that my FZ10's lens is not announced 35-420mm but 36-432mm from the property of the picture when using ACDSee. Anyone noticed this problem? Or mine was replaced by a FZ20's lens???

Any feedback is welcome!

Mine is the same. Not sure why and it may well just be within accepted tolerances.

oh?

I don't thinkit's a tiny mistake. maybe this makes the serious Chromatic aberration in my tele photoes!

Just want to know if 35-420mm is the CORRECT , and 36-436mm is the WRONG.

Many thanks!

Well you made me go looking for one. Heres two aphids meeting over a discarded skin. Added a Canon 100mm to the front of the FZ10.

Right out of the box and resized only. The EXIF info from Photoimpact reads on that line "Focal length (35mm film equivalent) 432" Thats exactly how it reads in PI. The EXIF I've kept in this shot, feel free to take a look.



CA.... well I would have trouble finding any to be honest and thats with an extra....maybe 12 elements of glass added.

All the best and yep, it reads 432 mm

good shooting, nzmacro. I know that CA is unavoidable to extra-zoom, but do you have any good way toreduce it?

One way to avoid CA is to use a higher Fstop value( smaller aperture) and underexpose a little.
