Kit to Macro

  • Excerpt: Turn your kit lens into a macro with a twist of the converter. This lens converter is a cheaper alternative to a full macro lens

Not a bad solution

  • Excerpt: This macro adapter works pretty well considering it is not a macro lens. I use it with either my 14-42 kit lens or the 40-150mm telephoto lens. It takes a little fussing to focus but once you figure out the correct length to extend your lens and correct distance from subject, it does the trick.

Does the job nicely...superb value

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

Considering cost..works well.

  • Excerpt: Great for the hobbyist who needs to take some Macro photos now and then. Works well for me on my coin collection, close up of flowers and even minute insects. What is a con for it is that it only works with certain Olympus lenses.

Handy for on-the-go Macro Shooting

Artisfrtsy, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is a nice inexpensive add on. As an EP-2 owner my kit lens doesn't work with adaptors, so I upgraded to the newer version. This adaptor also works on the 40-150 lens and that's where I use it the most.
