Hello,


I own the TCON-17 teleconverter which I use with my Fuji to take bird pictures ( http://www.fabioduarte.fot.br ).

I am interested in getting the FZ30 (possibly the new FZ50) and I would like to know if anyone could do a little test for me.

I would like to know what is the closest distance that I can be from the the subject in order to focus when the camera is at full zoom and which the TCON-17 attached (both in MACRO mode and not).

If would be so kind to do this test for me, I would appreciate it very much. Where I live (south of Brazil) there are no stores I can go to make this test myself.
Thanks in advance,
Fabio.

Fabio, likewise, I am helpless to point you. I also own the TCON1.7, but have not acheived your quality. Welcome to the forum. Love the photos. Many years ago I visited Brazil, in the Merchant Marines mostly along the Coast. Of course, being a seaman, I did not see much of the country. Then I was young and spunky, nature was not even on the horizon. How I wish now that I has seen more of your country.

Thanks for sharing
