I have been half halfheartedly looking for the TL55.

Does anyone know a source of the lens

I see post that is is very good. How does it compare to the TCON-14B?

Thanks

Stan

FZ30 uses the same wired remote as FZ20. The battery is still 7.2v but they haveincreased the mAh to 730 from 680. Presumably the dps9000will still work. The tl55 is much smaller than the 14b. Both are listed as 1.4x but the tl55 is really 1.3. (Dont know about the 14b.) The 14b is the better quality lens. Adorama has the tl55 for $90.

I trust the 120/240/vac to 7.2vdc extenal power supply will work too. BTW TCON 14B is supposed to be 1.45x.

If I have the -14B,I quess there is no reason to buy the TL55 if it not as good as the 14B.

Thanks again
