Question about Panasonic DMW-LW55 0.7x (DMWLW55) Lens Converter
I have a DMC-FZ100, DMW-LA5 adapter and an Olympus B-300 HQ 1.7x Tele Converter (instead of a DMW-LT55 - but that's another story). I also bought a DMW-LW55, thinking that I could fit it to DMW-LA5. However, looking at the LA5 Instructions, it says "(As of July 2010)The following types of lenses cannot be attached and used. Vignetting etc. may occur when taking pictures in wide)- Wide conversion lens DMW-LW55- ND filter DMW-LND55- MC protector DMW-LMC55"
This is very annoying considering that the LA5 is sold as THE adaptor for DMC-FZ100, DMC-FZ45, DMC-FZ40.
So what's the solution? A 52mm to 55mm step up filter ring? Will the wide angle lens be too close? Then there's the Panasonic DMW-LA2(E) It looks shorter than the LA5, but will there still be a vignetting problem? I am still seeking answers.
