So going through my collection of accessories for my former LX200 I found one of these.  Does anyone know if these will work with an LX600?  I still haven't unboxed my new LX600 or I'd check.

It will physically fit, however these are a combo reducer & corrector so be aware that if you are using a sensor larger than 1" likely you'll get unwanted aberrations.  This doesn't mean you can't try it of course... just to be aware it may not perform well.  

Now that being said, some owners of these reducer/correctors have removed the corrective lens and used only the reduction lens with some success.
