Re: Yoshida adapter--easy to order

It looks very professional. Flat black (model 1055B), screws on securely. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the FZ10 lens cover fits onto the front of the Yoshida adapter, so I don't need a new lens cover. I tried my TCON-17 on it - screws on securely. I put on a 55mm Hoya SMC UV filter (which I plan to leave on all the time.) No obvious vignetting through viewfinder at 1X, but I'll take photo tests to make sure.

Good investment for me, since I already have several 55mm filters for the FZ1 (UV, polarizer, star cross, close-up diopter set).

The 155B Yoshida adapter is the same size as the FZ1 plastic adapter, but it's metal and the threads are better, so the TCON-17 screws into it quite securely. Another worthwhile insurance investment for me, since my original TCON-17 fell off my FZ1 and broke when I accidentally attached it using the wrong filter (the only filter I had that held it securely before was the Hoya MC UV.) So I'm on my 2nd TCON-17.
I'll post pictures tomorrow.

Hey Steve, what's the adapter like? Are you planning to leave it on
at all times? Can you put a filter on the end? I'm very curious.
Any pix yet? We might do as comparison with Carlos' pix.

The translations are hilarious. Sorry you missed the PayPal.
