Pictures with this zoom lens are very good, the subject is always kept in clear crisp focus but any background matter is kept slightly off focus, this provides a very professional appearance to your photos. I have already found having the extra zoom handy, especially when taking pictures of jittery birds that fly off if you get too close (that's most of them).
All in all an excellent addition to the Lumix range.
I would rather have the FZ-200 and this converter than the new FZ-72 with its 60x zoom. The FZ-200's ability to hold f2.8 to the end of the zoom is particularly valuable for pictures of moving birds at long distances in poor light, and I can get pictures which would be quite impossible with an FZ-72, whose aperture narrows towards the end of the zoom. In fact I can get pictures that would be impossible with any other bridge camera.
One caution: the large lenses in the converter make it quite fragile. My first one fell out of my pocket in a padded case and broke, and I had to order another.
Having used this lens for a while, and been very pleased with it, there are a couple of things I'd like to add.
One is that there is no lens hood for it, and you really need one as sunlight glancing diagonally into the big lens can wreck a picture. I made one out of the top of a polypropylene pint beer glass lined with black sticky-backed plastic. Cut to the right length, it slides up the tube of the lens from the back and stays in place quite well. Not elegant, but it works.
The other is that you will certainly get into the habit of keeping the lens permanently screwed on to its adaptor tube, so that it can be attached to the camera quickly -- this becomes easy with practice. You therefore need a case for this assembly, which again isn't made. You can get a toiletries case from Muji which fits it perfectly, made of black nylon with a zip so that it looks quite like a camera accessory case.
Where sun shines across moon at 1/4 to 1/2 moon photos show smaller craters very clearly. Not quite NASA standard but very acceptable.
Works from around 8x zoom up to 24 with no ring. Vigneting?
Loss of 2 F stops ( 2.8 to 4 ) not a problem with moon as it's well lit.
Can't wait for spring / summer to capture some wildlife.
It was delivered quickly and does not make my Panasonic FZ330 camera that much heavier.
It does make it a little bit longer but the extra length can help to keep the camera steadier by allowing the left hand to hold it.
I am well pleased with this lens.
