The tripod adaptor allows using the DMC-GF1 with large-diameter lenses on tripods comfortably.
When using large-diameter lenses such as the LUMIX G VARIO 45-200mm/F4.0-5.6/MEGA O.I.S. (H-FS045200) or the LUMIX G VARIO HD 14-140mm/F4.0-5.8 ASPH./MEGA O.I.S. (H-VS014140), the lens may interfere with the pedestal of the tripod depending on the shape and length from the centre hole to the front edge (over approx. 2 cm). Check the necessity of the tripod adaptor by mounting the DMC-GF1 with the lens before purchase.
