Hi

Just wan to ask whether can i get a 3rd party len adapter for my LX3? For example:
http://www.amazon.com/Opteka-Adapter-Panasonic-DMC-LX3-Digital/dp/B001N3DEG0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1274093446&sr=8-2
Is there any differences between this and the offical LA4?

As im thinking of getting the .45x opteka lens.
Thanks
I have the original DMW-LA4 and fitting is very smooth and firm. Some 3rd party ones are gd too but depending on which type as some are hard to screw in while some others the fitting is not as secured.

Guys, if you're ordering the Opteka 0.45x wide angle converter, don't bother getting the adapter as it comes supplied. The supplied adapter works perfectly fine, screws onto the LX3 without a problem. The difference between the Opteka adapter and the original DMW-LA4 would mainly just be the difference in the filter thread diameter.

DMW-LA4, if I'm not wrong, has a 46mm filter thread, which will not fit the Opteka 0.45x converter for LX3. Opteka's 0.45x wide angle converter comes with a 52mm filter thread adapter.

Haha I had to ship mine in from the US as well. Bought on Amazon, but the shipping to Singapore is a whopping 59.90 USD! I had it shipped to Vpost USA which then sent it over to me, which is a much cheaper option especially if you share shipping with someone else.

haha 59.90 USD is if you ship direct to Singapore through Amazon. Shipping through Vpost would probably cost you about $15 - $16 SGD. (rough estimate as I shipped other items as well, but amounted to a total of $22)

OH sorry now that I'm re-reading the thread, think there may be a misunderstanding.. $59.90 USD is for shipping the Opteka 0.45x Wide Angle Converter with the 52mm adapter included.. LOL I wouldn't be paying $59.90 just for an adapter..

I just got myself pandabase adapter but i've got problem removing my lx3 front lens ring to mount on my adapter :(
No matter how i turn the ring anticlockwise using my thumb and forefinger .. the ring doesnt even shift at all.
Must i really use alot of force anot? I scare will spoil the ring lei..
