    In order to operate the DMC-LX5 camera with any lens filters, it is necessary to use this adapter, so that the lens has room to zoom and focus. The problem is that the lens cap does not work with the adapter and filter screwed into the camera body! So there is no protection available for the filter when not in use, short of unscrewing the entire assembly and putting the filter back into a case.

    Lumix Lens Adapter Works Well

    Pros

    • Does Not Accept Lens Cap

    Best Uses

      Comments about Panasonic DMW-LA6 Conversion Lens Adapter:

      The Panasonic Lumix DMW-LA6 Conversion Lens Adapter works as described by the manufacturer, but it could use a recessed lip or end cap to attach a lens cover. The original equipment lens cover does not fit the tube. There may be adapters that attach to the end of the Conversion Lens Adapter, to which a lens cap can be attached, but I have not yet found one.

        Comments about Panasonic DMW-LA6 Conversion Lens Adapter:

        I initially bought this to protect the lens motor while inside a waterproof bag style housing. When I ordered it I threw in a polarizing filter and am very pleased. It adds more creativity and protection to a fun little camera. I thought it was plastic but when I received it it is machined from metal, with smooth threads.

              Buy aftermarket one from Hong Kong for $10 including shipping. It's just a tube with threads at each end.

                  Makes my LX5 look even cooler than what it already looked like. I considered buying a cheaper knock off version of this but considering the prominence of the adapter on the camera I opted for the real deal. No regrets!

                              Lens and filter adapter from Panasonic is solid and well made. It works as it should (threads are smooth), and actually makes the camera more comfortable to hold. My only niggle is that it adds a good bit of bulk to a compact camera.

                                This item helps to make a fine camera an even better camera. For some time I have wanted a compact camera that accepts filters and this works well. It protects the lens, the lens barrel and allows me to shoot with a polarizer. It adds a bit to the overall size of the camera, but it is still compact. I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to use filters. I do not see myself purchasing the optional wide angle lens. The 24mm range of the lx5 is plenty wide.

                                      It's a ring threaded on each end and it works fine.
                                      The threads match the Lumix DMC-LX5 and the standard 52mm filters etc.

                                            The reason I buy this lens adapter together with the 52mm MC lens protector is to protect the camera's lens. It serves the purpose. But the new MC lens become unprotected. That means it solves a problem and create a problem at the same time. It should come with a larger lens hood to protect the 52mm MC lens because the original lens hood is too small and become useless.
                                            Another drawback after putting on the lens adapter is the camera become more bulky.

                                                The 52mm size lets me use my old Nikon filter sets, especially my polarizer and soft-focus screens.

                                                    This is an indispensable item for enhancing image possibility and quality of my LX5. I added it to not only protect the lens but also to use filters (ND, polarizer, and mist) to get the effects desired.

                                                    I am planning on using this adapter to connect to a 35mm DOF adapter (a Red Rock Micro 72mm) to get a better video image. The fast 2.0 aperture and the light weight of LX5 seem to be a good candidate for an indie film maker.
