LX7 Adapter Tube for Addon Lenses - Yeah!

Good news for everyone out there who'd like to use add-on lenses on an LX7.

Some weeks ago a third party adapter tube was introduced (see http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/post/50588734) which I ordered, it was delivered today. It's a very lightweight but solid piece of aluminum fitting securely to the LX7 by a bajonet mount!

While closeup lenses for macro shootings may also be attached with the DMW-FA1 to the front lens this KIWI tube allows the use of converters in a way we were used to with the LX5 or LX3.

Due to the nature of the LX7 optics this solution will be much more preferable for wide angle converters than for tele converters.

This is what it looks like:

And, hmmmm, please forgive me, if you want to take your LX7 out for birding, here we are:

Not a super-duper-wonder-machine-SX50, but ...  

Btw no vignetting with an E17ED, while it does with an E15ED.
