Excerpt: I am very impressed with the WCON-P01. I am using it on an E-M10 with 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R lens. The WCON-P01 does reduce the sharpness a little, and also reduces the contrast some, but it is actually better than I expected, and I wouldn't hestitate to use it if I needed a wider angle for a...
Excerpt: Bought this as a small and cheap alternative to the 9-18 mFT lens (and instead of using my full 4/3rds 9-18). I had read about it being interesting to attach, but it took me 3-4 attempts before I finally twisted it enough to actually click into the locked position.
Excerpt: My version arrived defective but I'm not going to judge it on that fact. I hate when people do that! My adapter did not lock into place on my kit lens. If you have the kit lens and cannot afford something wider buy one. For the price it's a no brainer.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Good Pq, Good quality, Lightweight
Excerpt: Pros: Looks good Acceptable image quality at reasonable price No noticeable vignetting when used with 14-42mm lens Cons: Can only be used with 14-42mm lens Other: It can be used on Olympus 45mm f1.8 lens but fits loose and loss of sharpness is evident.
Summary: Make sure you've got the M. Zuiko Digital 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 II... if your lens isn't labeled "II" (as in you have the old one) the WCON won't mount. I point that out because it's not mentioned in the product description. Other than that, it works great!
Summary: Works easily and well, and as convertors goes, is the best one I have ever used! You really do not see a difference in performance and in fact I tested that the shutter speed is NOT affected when adding the converter in most circumstances! Hard to find softness even in the corners!
Summary: This lens performs well - but I had to apply a couple layers of tape to the threads to keep it on. Since figuring out that workaround I have been happy with the pictures. Would be nicer if Olympus comes up with a version that fits the 9-18 wide angle lens.
This wide-angle converter is awesome for non-professional photographers

Summary: This wide-angle converter is awesome for non-professional photographers. The only drawback I see is one must be very careful, when putting it on the lens, not to get some dirt inside. This might be tricky if you are on a windy beach.
