Does the job nicely...superb value

EagleEye, B&H Photo
25 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I've only snapped a few things with this lens converter, but it was enough to impress me. I'm always fascinated by the macro world, often taking close-ups of flowers or a bee pollinating one, but I could never get as close as I wanted. Cue this converter.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Performance For Its Price, Value
  • Cons: Can't add filters, Mount Only To Std Lens

Great shots!

  • Summary: I bought some cheap close up filters with various grades for my Nikon D5000, I was only slightly impressed. With MCON-P01, I was so pleasantly surprised that this filter produced clear and crisp close up shots! I recommend this for amateur photogs like me.

Will not replace a dedicated macro lens

Zolton, B&H Photo
30 July 2013
  • Excerpt: The macro convertor was tested on a M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-150mm f/4.0-5.6 Zoom lens. The Pros: Small, inexpensive and easy to install and use. The cons: Not any better then other "close up" filter type lenses. Do not expect to produce close up images that will enhance your creativity.

Excellent value for money especially when used with the tele zoom lens

thomasfolks, Ebay
4 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought the MCON-P1 as an affordable accessory to give macro capability to my two Olympus kit lenses (14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 II, and M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6). Attaches to the bayonet front of both lenses.

Works for Me

Erg the kayaking photographer, B&H Photo
2 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The MCON-P01 makes my Olympus 14-150 into a very useful macro lens. It's not as crispy clear as a dedicated macro lens, but it does a really nice job. On the 14-150, the focusing range (7" from the end of the lens) allows you to be far enough away to make this a useful macro lens out in the field.
  • Pros: Easy to attach, Lightweight, Small

There are better options available for a few extra bucks

petethmeat, Ebay
27 February 2013
  • Summary: If you are going to buy a converter macro lens then buy an achromatic lens with the appropriate size threads to fit on your lens. There are two low cost options that are just a few bucks more than the MCON P01 ... the Raynox 150 and the Marumi achromat close up lenses.
