A 28-300 Tamron X1.6 sounds like a great multipurpose lens.

Thanks Jim.

Cheers:Ian Mc

I'm surprised that anyone from the Panasonic board would remember me, I didn't hang around long- the FZ30 just wasn't the camera for me. I bought a Pentax DS and think it was the best decision I ever made.

The folks here are as friendly and helpful as everyone on the Panny board - I can't believe how much I've learned sincejumping on here to ask how to make manual K-mount lenses work with the DS. Don't hesitate to ask, someone here will have the answer.
hey mtngal, you also learned how to make an extention tube....hehe

LOL! Roy - your advice worked, after an hour of frustration trying to break tension on the screws. For those new to the boards, the way I got a homemade extension tube was to take a lousy 2X TC and took the glass out. Now in order to get the glass out I ended upusing a large, strong screwdriver and a hammer. A whole bunch of (careful) whacks and I had an extension tube.

That is what I have as well, but without the hammer.

Hi Jim,

All of your photos are very nice, but Photos #1,3,4 &6 capture me the most. Number six, however, would have to be the best of the lot - to me. Great shots.

BLESSINGS,

Nate
