Great Wide Angle Option

Matthew C. Bayer, Amazon

Tough to attach at first

Ken, B&H Photo
24 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.

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.

Raj, B&H Photo
1 May 2013
  • 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.

Not up to Olympus standards

Old guy, B&H Photo
13 March 2013
  • Excerpt: This would not even bayonet correctly on my lens, it would not lock and could easily be turned and fall off. It seems like it was made by a vendor to Olympus standards.

Essential Accessory

Brownie, Amazon
8 December 2012
  • Summary: This lens quickly and easily attaches to the standard 14-42 mm lens. It increases the field of view by about 20 degrees. It really made the difference on a number of shots on our recent trip. Absolutely consider this for traveling.

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

Mikiehead, Amazon
5 December 2012
  • 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 attachment for the new lenses

Stephen Tamm, Amazon
2 December 2012
  • 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!

Must have for Olympus EP3

brett myers, Amazon
30 November 2012
  • Summary: The price went up since my purchase, but I would buy again, as this is the best purchase I've made to supplement my Olympus EP3. It makes a huge difference in tight spaces and adds so much depth to the photo. I recently came back from a ghost town trip and left this on for most of the shots.
