All quetions have been answered.

The DCR6600 with speciall TRing or the Novemeber release HD6600 -55 have no rivals on the FZ30 .


Wcon 08 and 07 distort more on any FZ.

The DCR6600 on the FZ10 the picture is up above.

Get it? Got it? ....Good.
Sorry, English is not my first language.

I understand about distortation that DCR6600/HD6600 is better than WCON, but how about contrast/sharpness of the pictures on FZ20?

A side question, will you be making special TRing for TCON-14B/6T/5T as well?

Thanks.
Yes I am making special TRings for 55-58 55-62, 55-52 and 55-43.

Both lense have the same sharpness and contrastDCR6600 vignettes on the FZ10 . This is the best one can do witha CRing adapter.

24mm



26mm





32mm

Yes, they have worse results on their adapter then the CRing and do not recommend the lens for the FZ20. They do not recommend the lens for the FZ30 because the 52mm mount requires a 4mm step-down ring. That is why they are introducing the HD6600 -55mm mount in November. Raynox is a very careful and well run Company I met the owner last year and he loved my adapter but said it was too costly for him to produce. If the lens is not on the recommended list there is a good reason. The DCR6600 does have a tiny vignette in the CRing adapter but I think at 1X it is very acceptable considering the high image quality.

Hi All

I have a related question. I have the 6600pro and the 1540pro. I have 2 step up rings and the gluing in will take place soon.

However, what cap do you put over the step up ring side of the lens?I measure the OD of the kenko step up ring as 60.25mm.



Thanks in advance.



Allan

Because of the short range between lens and subject the UV, a lens protector, and a polarizer have almost zero functionality. If you want to keep the filters and use them on a FZ30 you will need a 55-62mm step ring, 62mm lens cap and a 62mm Hama collapsible rubber hood. Since the step ring's 4mm gap will increase the possibility of internal lens flaring the hood is mandatory. Many professionals use this approach because they can focus on one or two sizes of filters with rings to fit a variety of cameras.

Thank you. It would be better to get 55mm filter, isn't it?

How about the 62mm hama collapsible rubber hood.

FZ30 -> 55mm filter -> 55-62mm step-ring -> Hama hood

Would the step-ringcause any possible vignetting, etc.? Would it be better to get a 55mm Hama hood?



Thanks.

55mm filter vs 62mm UV: This is a coin flip.Hoya dual coated UV 55mm $12.50. Hoya PL $21.05 including shipping.

I would never give advice without having absolute proof. I just checked out your proposed configuration on the FZ30 lens >55mm UV 55-62mm ring and Hama 62mm hood. Then changed it to FZ30 lens>55mm PL >55-62mm ring and Hama 62mmhood. In both configurations there is no vignetting at 35mmf2.8.

Thanks LoveLife. Grad to hear that 62mm Hama hood will work with step-ring.
