Robert, I am concerned that you may wait an awful long time for the DMW-LA7 adaptor from BH. AFAIK, the adaptor has never been available from US suppliers, have not seen anything on the forum reporting stock here. I went through the waiting game, refusing to spend $65 for the adaptor from Japan, just knowing that as soon as I ordered one they would show up in the US. I sent emails to Panasonic, eventually getting a reply saying that they would get back to me. After a few more weeks, I gave up and ordered from Japan. It has been a few months and I still haven't heard back from Panasonic.

It might be cheaper and quicker to build my own adapter out of empty filter rings or spacers with step-up/down adapters on the ends as needed.  One plus would be the knurled edges compared to the smooth tube.
