Hi FZ30 owners

I have three questions re the lens:

1. Is the lens threaded?

2. What thread size?

3. Can it accept accessory lens?

Many thanks in advance for anyone who responds esp given that Christmas is just around the corner!

1. Yes
2. 55mm
3 Yes, panasonic has both wide angle and teleconverter lenses available but you can also use others. There is a comprehensive thread here somewhere that shows how well the other model lenses perform on the FZ30

I just got my FZ30 the other day and ordered a 55 - 62mm step up ring so I could use my Nikon 6T close-up lens. Preliminary testing last night proved to be very good.

Hello, my friend! Saw your post and here's a bit of info I posted in another topic. Pretty close to same question there too. Threads are 55 mm. Panasonicsupplies a 1.7X LT-55 tele and a wide angle as well. Can't comment on the wide angle but the tele works like a hot dam!

The FZ30 works also very well with the Raynox DCR6600 wide angle converter. You can either get the original one with the 52mm thread and attach it onto a 55/52 CRing, (LoveLife, a forum member here, sells those and other accessories on ebay as jk-consultants) or you can get the new version with the 55mm thread specifically created for the FZ30, but it costs $50 more. I got all my lenses and accessories with a 52mm thread (including the DCR6600, polarizer, skylight, Nikon 4T close-up, etc.) and always keep my CRing on.
