Wide angle



Wide angle with Olympus W08 w/ 55-62 step up ring (no cropping! no vignette!)



12x at 8 megapixels



19x at 3 megapixels



19x plus Olympus B300 (TC-17)



All photos were a little light so ran contrast enhancement in psp8.

All photos handheld and shot thru 55mm uv filter.

Yes, the experiment is a success: FZ30 plus Olympus Lenses = great combo!

Artifact "ruflfles" in sky are due to resize for web. They are not in full size images.

All accessory lens that work well with the earlier fz's seem to work well with the fz30 with the exception of the wcon07 that has a soft spot in the center.

I guess, it can't be stated often enough, that the "Extra Zoom" in the 5 and 3 MegaPixel modes are a marketing gag. It is nothing other than an internally cropped picture.

But, who needs 19(fake)x, when one has such a nice tc17?

And with the exception of the Raynox 1600 which has soft edges not present with the FZ20.

You are too funny A henway indeed. I loved the comparisons. I've left the digital zoom off so far. Used it all the time on my FZ10, but don't like how it behaves day to day on the 30. Or knowing me, I'm missing something obvious!

Thanks for the shots,

Debbie

Assuming you mean the 6600 .66x wa, there really hasn't been enough feedback. Here is a dpreview thread showing a stitched 360 degree pan with the fz30/6600. It does exhibit a slight bit of softness at the edges butclose toinsignificant, IMO. See http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...ssage=16611523

Yes, of course, I meant the DCR6600, my bad. Well, there might not be enough feedback, but here is mine: I own the DCR6600 and used them on both, the FZ20 and the FZ30. It was crisp across the board with the FZ20 and it gives soft edges with the FZ30.


Here is a shot I took with the FZ20:
