I recently bought a FZ5 and was quite disappointed with the lens adaptor provided. The lens thread on the adaptor does not seem to mate well with the lens thread of an external filter - filter can just drop out even when fully screwed in. My cousin who owned a FZ5 also encountered the same problem.

I know there is this Phayee Adaptor around, but from what I had read so far, it seems to fit the FZ10/FZ20 only. Is there a similar adaptor that can be purchased locally for the FZ5? If there is, can anyone kindly tell me where to get it? What is the approximate price for one?

Many thanks in advance!

The cause of the problem is extra 1mm of unthreaded plastic in front of the plastic lens tube. Sand/cut it away and you can attach lenses without problems.

Looks like some metal (alloy) adaptor for the FZ5. Would gladly get it, if not for selling my conversion lens!

u can try email
mschen3@url.com.tw.

anyway it says
Shipping and FZ5 Adapter = 100 + 800 = 900 Taiwan dollars (approximately 45 SGD)
Shipping and FZ10/20 Adapter = 100 + 1200 = 1300 Taiwan Dollars (approximate 66 SGD)
NOTE: Shipping is within taiwan.
I believe international shipping will cost much more.

email him for more details ba.

Yoz bros.. sorry.. my friend is too busy to pluck out some time to go pick it up..
She's rushing around like a mad woman finishing up stuff. Her flight is tomorrow morning, so...

the only way is to wait for the next time she go back to taiwan, or when I go back to taiwan, or my relatives are free to help pick it up.
heh better get a MO going if urgent ba..
Sorry..
