This is totally unsolicited. I only saw it on the dpreview Pany talk. I don't know lovelife from playlong. He has been a very active and informed member of the forum, not to mention his considerable photographic skills. His oft mentioned fz10/15/20 adapter is finally available here. Manyproducts including adapters are referred to here with links to particular suppliers. This post is no different in that regard.

Fred

I had a prototype I was using for a while and I think its a great Adapter and Idea.

I will have a fullversion shortly and I am sure people will like it.

If anyone is considering an adapter you may want to consider his.

Fred & Genece

Thanks for posting the links - its the first time I'm seen Lovelife's adapter and it looks a lot better than I thought it would.

Very well thought out and implemented, the advantage is the addon lens is brought very close the the front element of the Leica lens, also each addon lens can have its own Cring.


Not usefull to me as I still use the beginners FZ1

It does look like a nice adapter. If I was in the market for one I would seriously consider this.

if he wanted to make some serious money he could something design half decent that worked for the FZ5...

I know that I, and alot of other FZ5 owners probably wouldn't hesitate in buying one, because at the moment there seems to be absolutely nothing out there for it, which is a shame because they are such great cameras.

I've just ordered mine, and I think it will truely reduce complications with fitting my aftermarket lenses.

And I've got to say thanks to Lovelife for expanding his delivery parameters to include Australia, at my request. Thank you .

Cheers

Thank you for you favorable words. If someone asks about it tell them it comes with a 14 Day return trial period.

It will take a long time to recover my investment in the CRing FZ10+ product. I was late because of start-up production problems. What a stroke of marketing genius announcing the greatest solution for the FZ20, at the birth of FZ30.I could not have planned it...I am moving onto a CRingFZ30+ Adapter, which will use the same CRings. Anybody know where I can get an early FZ30. I will pay a $100.00 premium over list.

Just a few days since I ordered the adaptor from the other side of the planet, and now it, and my wcon-08 are on the FZ20. Fabulous service. :-)

Now, if only I could lose these crutches (broken knee :X) and get out & about with it.
