Hi List, just a quick question.



Does the FZ7 require an adapter for filters or is the lens threaded. Bill.

It requires an adapter. The camera comes with a plastic adapter for the lens hood that is also threaded for 52mm filters.Panasonic alsosellsthe DMW-LA2 which has 55mm threads and is made of aluminum.

The 52mm adapter that comes withthe fz7 is sufficient for small filter add-ons. You might want to get something a little stronger for larger converters. In additon to the aluminum Panasonic adapter, Pemaraalhas fz7 adapters in both 52mm and 55mm.

I just ordered the Pemaraal 52mm adapter late Friday night. It arrived today! This looks to be a great piece. Very nice and fits great. It is just a little shorter then the stock plastic adapter but much stronger. I have high hopes that this will eliminate the vignette I get with my DCR-6600 wa. I'll test and post tomorrow but for now it looks like the ticket!! Did I mention it was on sale? Even with shipping it was a great price. Check them out if you have an FZ7.
