Any one familiar with this type of lens for the FZ30?

Thanks very much, that is about what I expected. Of course, they always show great photo shots that one has no way of knowing whether it was actually taken with that lens. I am really glad to have found a forum of real people taking real photos and sharing their own personal knowledge and experience with newcomers. It was this forum that made up my mind to get the FZ30.

Thanks again.

You're not going to find a decent 3x tele for the fz series (or most likely any zoom camera). The most powerful teleconverter that gives decent results is the Raynox dcr2020pro 2.2x, which goes for about $200. If your looking for a really good deal for next to nothing, consider the olympus c-210 1.9x on ebay. Oly has been unloading them (and the c180 1.7x and c160 1.5x) for $10 + 3 s/h. See here for some samples with the fz30. Overall, your best bet is the oly tcon17 1.7x for <$100.
