    Question Nikon TC-E17ED Teleconverter lens on FZ20 & FZ30?

    Hello All.

    I ordered an OEM 1.5 Tele. Was notified Monday they did not know if or when they could deliver the item-if at all. I told them to cancel the order and apply the total amount back to my credit card.

    After talking here and photo.net, and doing a bit of research, I decided I would purchase the Nikon TC-17 tele for my FZ20.

    Question(s): what adapter should I purchase for the Nikon to fit my FZ20?
    Or does the proper adapter come with the lens?
    And will the same adapter fit an FZ30?

    If I remember correctly this lens has a 60mm mount and most third party adapters are 62mm.
    Here are a couple of adapter choices search eBay for “CRing FZ20” and “Phayee
    Here is a link for the 62- 60mm step-down ring.

    No these adapter will not fit on the FZ30 it has 55mm threads and will require a 55-60mm step-up ring.

    The adapter should be sold with the camera it will raise the resale value.

    The TCON 17 has a 55mm ring.

    To connect it the the FZ-20 you will need a 72-55mm step down adaptor. Go to B&H photo and get one for $10.

    Lovelifes info is correct the Nikon TC-E17ED has 60mm threads.

    Ilan is confusing two different teleconverters. Or perhaps I am...
