Excerpt: Since I bought this fisheye converter I have had it attached to my camera more often then I haven't. Images turn out great. it does add a considerable amount of size, but unless you are going very light and small, then its worth it.
Excerpt: I like the options that this unit offers me at the price and convienience that this lens provides me with. Build quality seems great and it is quite compact which definately helps. The hardest part to get used to is how different it looks compared to my other lens. It is a lot of fun...and recommend that you buy one.
Excerpt: If you're on a budget and want a decent fisheye perspective, this convertor is great. It is well constructed and converts the kit 14-42mm lens well. If you're after a light camera bag setup, this convertor, as well as the macro and wide convertors, stack well into a single lens spot in your camera bag and give your 14-42mm lens some added versatility
Excerpt: This is an awesome add on when shooting cityscapes and architecture. You really can bend lines with it and get some great effects. With your kit lens wide it's especially dramatic - on the tele side you can get a much more conservative wide angle effect. Nicely built - metal housing and glass element - this is my favorite Oly accessory.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Although it's marketed as a Fisheye it offers relatively minor fisheye distortion. Indoors you will see distortion and you can provoke the distortion by shooting at extreme angles (up/down). But for landscapes, when held level, it works as an ultra-wide. It is relatively sharp in the center but sharpness falls off dramatically near the corners. There is also some CA with high contrast images but it's not too bad.
Summary: I got this to fit onto my Olympus Pen EPL1. I have Zuiko 14-42mm lens that came with the camera and after reading the description of the Fisheye didn't envisage any problems. However when I received the Fisheye lens I couldn't get it to fit. After a bit of head scratching I realised that although my lens seemed to be compatible, it wasn't. The FCON-P01 Fisheye only fits on the 'II' variant of the lens (which I guess is the second version).
Summary: This is a very well made adapter and the slightly high price tag is justified in terms of quality of glass and build. However, this actually weighs a fair bit more than the 14-42mm lens it goes on and when extended (meaning not locked) it feels like it's putting a fair bit of strain on the lens. On the plus side, the adapter does produce some very fun and creative fish eye pictures and is a very cheap alternative compared to the Panasonic 8mm fisheye lens.
