No data so far.

OK, thanks, will try to keep an eye on it from now, can't be long before someone gives it a try

I gave it a quick try today with my TCON-17. I screwed it onto the front thread with a 62-55mm step down ring. As far as I can tell with one short test, the AF seems just as fast as it was without the TC. I was actually expecting that, because Panasonic say its DFD AF system is designed to work with Panasonic lenses and the camera has one of those already. The extra bit of glass shouldn't prevent the DFD system from working. If the DFD system didn't work, you would still have the "Light Speed" AF system working, but having the extra speed the DFD gives is preferable.

Thanks for the feed-back Rodger ,.. sounds good
