What does the `Conversion' setting (to Tele or Wide) actually do?

Guerito (Steve's Digicam, Panasonic forum, 2 March 2004)...

As far as I can tell, it just limits the zoom range to fit whatever lens you using. 6x-12x for the tele {it also disables the onboard flash} and 1x-2x for the WA {wide angle}. This prevents you from zooming out of the range of the lens.
