Later i will post my first pics
it is a major step up from my olympus D460Z.
but i wanted to know...
the lens is big and i want to protect it....
will a 72mm ND filter do de job?
or should i go to the stepdown ring and a smaller filter route?
i will not use any other filter, i want it only for protection
thanks in advance

IF you're using ONLY for protection and know for sure that you'll not be adding any other filters, lenses, etc. But once you start playing you're almost certain to want other 'stuff'.

Its a very nice camera , well worth the $$$

Typically people migrate there current equipment to use with there new cams

" If you got it use it ".

Id like to have a filter that fits the standard Pana tube myself , thats pretty big .

Of course going smaller is perfectly fine and cheaper as well .

Read the post " FZ10 Users Guide" lots of good info there :-)

enjoy your Pana :|

I went this way for a lens adapter

I think it is a great setup, but there are a number of others that are just as good.

The stock lens hood allows you to put a 72mm filter on the end, but some say it is so far from the lens that it can cause reflections back into your camera.

The Phayee comes with 62mm threads which are the same as the Nikon 6t close-up filter and then I got a 62/55 step down ring for my Tcon-10 telephoto adapter.

mmm those adapters look good, but i live in argentina, is almost impossible to buy them to me
i will not buy any other thing, the only thing that matters to me is to protect the lens.... a litte glare doesn't bother me.
i will go the 72mm filter route...
the adapters that i get here go over the 72mm adapter of the camera, and leave the filter far away from the lens.


Pd: compared with my olympus 460D, this camera has a lot of problems focusing in indoors (center metering and point focusing).
