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
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: Used it with my 40-150mm and it took an almost 1: 1 macro. Images look sharp. An inconvenience having to remove the UV filter but this is not an everyday use lens. I only need it for certain situations. If I was into macro photography I would get a real macro lens.
Excerpt: Although this macro conversion lens can be attached to the olympus 14-42mm MKII, it works best with the olympus 40-150mm. Considering it's less than a 15th of the cost of the panasonic 45mm f2.8, it's a steal.
