very good performance

Rich, B&H Photo
29 May 2015
  • 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...

Tough to attach at first

Ken, B&H Photo
23 July 2013
  • 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.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Small
  • Cons: A Challenge To Lock On, Soft Image Quality

Inexpensive Wide Angle Performance

Bill, B&H Photo
1 May 2013
  • 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

  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

Good attachment for the new lenses

Stephen Tamm, Amazon

  • 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!

Good for the price and not bad at any price!!!!

Mikiehead, Amazon
18 April 2013
  • 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!

Good performance, bad fit

Kevin Terry, Amazon
17 April 2013
  • 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

Nikolay Todorov, Amazon
7 April 2013
  • 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.
