Does anyone know if the Lee Filter Holder/Adapter system will fit onto my FZ20 either to the lens hood which has a female 72mm thread or a Raynox extension tube which has a 52mm female thread?

I can't tell from any of the Lee literature I've seen.

Cheers:?

From their UK distributors website:

The Lee Filter Holder system is so versatile that it can be fitted on any camera. This means that whether the photographer is using a 35mm, medium, large format or even extremely wide-angle lens, they will always enjoy the performance and benefits the system provides.

An adapter ring that screws onto the front of the lens is the key to the versatility of this system. Once the appropriately sized adapter is fitted, the rest of the system clips neatly and easily into place.
They have adapters from 49 mm upwards including 52 and 77.

Thanks Ian,

I was hoping it would but I couldn't work out whether the Lee Adapter has a male thread or female. Nothad much experience yet.

Thanks again.

The Raynox adapter was designed for lenses and not filters or filter rings. You may experience some vignetting. I would opt for a "Phayee" or "CRing adapter" they have a 62mm base. The standard adapter is a very poor design the added accessory is too far from the Leica front element.
