Lens Front Threads???

I can't detect any threads in the video image on the lens front. This probably means that in order to use macro filters or lenses we are back to "adapter tubes" of yesteryear - a real PITA. With the enclosed lens of the FZ30 and FZ50, throwing macro lenses on and off is an easy thing.

I have decided to begin the search for another FZ50 as the one currently in service (72,000 shutter actions) shows its age. The lens is still pristine with a UV filter on it since the day of its purchase. But the outer rubber grip material is being kept on in some small areas with duct tape, and the EVF rubber cushion lost just three weeks ago is on backorder. (No guarantee that I'll ever get it either.)
