I'm hoping to hear back from you...saying you didn't give up on the 30, just the dealer. Keep us in the loop!

Hi Kenneth!

Thank you so much for your post, I really appreciate it....

No, I haven't given up on the FZ30, but I sure have on the lenses/filters......The 30 is heavy enough without them anyway.......LOL......(The 20 is alot more usable for quick-action cat photo's, which is what I shoot most often.)...

I'm just hoping I didn't scratch the Leica lense on the 30 trying to get these conversion lenses on.I've taken somephoto's, which I will enlarge, just to make sure everything's A-ok.....

Thanks again for all your support!

Shelley..."Clueless in Training".......LOL

Kenneth, where did you get your LT 55? I can't find it anywhere. I can't even figure out if it's ordable from the panasonic site.

Thanks

I am in Calgary, Alberta, Canada...I bought mine at a place called "The Camera Store" I believe they are available at London Drugs as well. I paid $220, I believe...and I say "i believe" because I left a deposit and paid the remainder some time later, and can't remember exactly how much of a deposit I put down. But they do have a web site and you can contact them, search'em up on the net. I DO realize that the TCON is cheaper, and likely as good if not better from what I've read, but I am quite happy with the results I have so far. I just posted a moon shot, and a lovely ram shot which tho handheld, came out very nice. Actually, I don't mind posting them right here if you are curious to see the LT-55 at work. Good luck,

KennethD

my experimental moon shot from last night...not the greatest, I'm partly blaming clouds and haze and I think I can get a better one tonight...again 12X zoom LT-55 attatched, tripod, f9 1/125

My apology to Shene, I realize this is not my original topic, and is your post, I'm not trying to hijack the topic, just trying illustrate a point without bouncing back and forth between posts to reference these shots I'd already posted....:GThanks,

Kd

Turn off the OIS when on a tripod.

You lkely read this in the other post, but for anyone else reading here, the FZ 30 has 2 settings for IS. One only initiates at the instant you release the shutter. It has no bearing on this particulair tripod shot, the wildlife was handheld. Most likely the razor sharp shot I'd like, but was absent here...was due to a thin cloud layer between me and the moon. H O W E V E R it wasn't a B A D G U E S S ...and might give others insight into similair shots with different settings.

Ken,

Are you telling me that you cannot turn off the OIS on an FZ30? If, so that is a step backward.

OIS is only a real benefit for handheld shots and it does create some problems when left on when on a tripod. Well at least for the other FZ's I know they do.

Don't see how it isn't any different with the FZ30 in this particular situation.
