You need a 62-55m step-up ring with a 4.12mm offset and a 62-55mm CRing.

I cannot guarantee the same results with someone else's product.



Check out this link for more pictures and information.

Does your Cring add to the 4.12 offset? If so how much?

Ok, so are you JK Consultants? I have been admiring your photos, and wondering about all the different lens tests, which I have yet to fully digest. I guess as a novice , I am still trying to figure out exactly which w/a and Tele lens I should get for the FZ-30. To say I am somewhat confused by all the different hype would be an understatement. While I am nowhere on a "pro" level of photography, I don't want to make the same mistakes twice in purchasing and returning lens. Every manufacturer always say theirs is the best, and even in forums there are different opinions. I guess my real question is, 'If you could only have one lens of each(macro, tele, & W/A), which would you own for the FZ-30.

Thanks

It is difficult to tell the difference in quality on a monitor. Is the 08 as good as the 07? Do you use the stepup/your ring step down?

TIA LoveLife

Now you should be able to see the difference.

The WCON08B is using a 55-62mm TRing

The WCON07 is using a combination 55-62mm Step-up ring and a 62-55mm CRing

Your: http://lovelife.smugmug.com/photos/35784545-O-1.jpg is [1854KB]
And your: http://lovelife.smugmug.com/photos/55525674-O.jpg is [4143KB]

My question was:"Is the 07 a better quality lens than the 08". The two above pictures are of different resolutions so it is difficult to check the sharpness, lack of aberrations ofeach lens, etc. So in your honest opinion Which is better?! i.e.which lens on the FZ30 takes a BETTER picture ignoring the obvious difference between a .8 [28] and a .7[24] ?

Thanks again
