I have the pemeraal adaptor for the fz20 and I can't say enough good things about it. I would suggest not bothering with the model that has the built in threaded hood, after getting it, I ended up getting a rubber hood instead.

Eddie,

Thanks for your input on this company. Always good to hear, and your info on the two piece unit is interesting.

For those interested I emailed Peramaal and asked about the length of the one piece unit. Here is the reply.



"Both the 55mm and 52mmFZ7 adapters will be shorter than the stock plastic adapter by 1mm.
Peter"

Hopefully that will mean the DCR-6600 in 52mm or 55mm trim will work well. Maybe there is someone out there with the new FZ7 and a 6600 that could comment on the stock unit?

Panasonic has consistently made the smaller fz adapters too long. I suppose the reason being concern over the extended lens hitting the accessory lens. IMO, they have been a little too cautious. Fortunately, the stock plastic adapters have been easy to shorten using sandpaper. Nice to hear pemaraal will shorten theirs.

Peter also said the single, non-hooded adapter will sell for about $30.

For those trying to understand how the FZ7 2 piece adapter works, please visit the following link: http://www.pemaraal.com/OPERATING_IN...NS_English.pdf

The design is different and IMO even better than the FZ20 version.

I got my lens hood adapter last week. It was in my hands in two days and installed within the first five minutes of possession. All I can say is WOW this ia a great addition to my FZ7,very handy. The service from Pete was very good and I plan on doing business with them again,a TCON-17 for my FZ7

rickyblaze,

Looks really nice. Is that the 55mm version? Also if you don't mind would you please take a closeup of the lens fully extended at 12x without the filter in place? I know the adapter is about 1mm shorter then the stock unit I would just like to see how close to the end it really is. I'm thinking of getting the 52mm version.

Thanks,

-Brett
