Excerpt: Got this for a the just released TG-3 model. 1/4 turn and it clicks firmly into place - not loose at all. its made of plastic but seems to work well. I used it for an always-on UV filter and then added a Polarizing Filter as needed. However, I will buy a second CLA-T01 adapter and keep the polarizing filter attached to it because its MUCH faster removing the 1/4 turn lens adapter from the camera than the screw thread filters.
Bad accessory design for an otherwise great camera.

Summary: This feature should be an integral part of the camera. Without it you cannot guard the lens with a lens cap or add on accessory lenses. I've already lost one because the accessory zoom lens is threaded and twists off counter-clockwise. Unfortunately, so does this adapter leaving it loose & easy to lose if you are not VERY careful. A pitiful situation for a camera built for outdoor use & touted by the manufacturer as being extremely durable & quick to use.
Pros: You can add a protective lens cap & accessory lenses once you purchase this adapter.
Cons: You can't add a protective lens cap or accessory lenses unless you purchase this adapter. Because it's a screw-on adapter without a positive locking devise it is easy to lose when you unscrew the accessory lens.
Excerpt: Part of the reason i purchased this was to be able to use some existing screw-on lenses with my new TG-1, and also to be able to add a lens cap to protect the front glass a little when the camera is in my pocket. The adapter shipped with a nice olympus branded lens cap (this is not mentioned in the 'what's in the box' section) ..
Summary: Värt att veta är att det medföljer ett linsskydd/linslock, jag hade tänkt köpa mig ett sådant.. så det var en glad överraskning som gjorde denna enkla plåtbit något mer prisvärd! Jag köpte denna tillsammans med ett UV-filer för att ge kameralinsen ett extra repskydd. Tillsammans så bygger denna+fliter+lock lite drygt en centimeter på tjockleken - något man bör ha i åtanke om man ska köpa sig en kameraväska till den kombinationen.
