Summary: If you are interested in this lens to do 3d video like I was, know that its only for 3d pictures. When the description of the lens states "recording" they mean recording photos. Totally misleading. Also for those who have gone as far as to figure out a way to record 3d video by taping the contacts, it does work, but its not meant for that so there ends up being a blurry border in the middle between the 2 images. The image quality is poor at best.
Summary: I have confirmation from Olympus America that this lens works with the latest Olympus PEN EP-5 and the Olympus OM-D EM-1. It did not work with prior versions of the PEN EP or EP-L series. I rated neutral because I don't own the lens, merely thinking about buying. I'm not happy with Olympus for now requiring a specialty lens for 3d instead of having in-camera processing with overlay for shooting. Silly expense.
Summary: This allows you to reproduce the capability of a Realist Macro camera cheaply and easily. It has fixed focus so is best used with a classical focus bar - put the camera at that distance and shoot! The factory focus is set at about 25" which is too far for the 10 mm interocular. It is easy to remove 3 screws and add spacing washers to focus closer. My 3 lenses are set to 10", 7" and 4". I taped over the lens contacts so that I get more functions available.
Panasonic 3D lens only for certain Lumix cameras, not all MTF cameras

Summary: I bought this interesting lens because on the Amazon webpage it said it will fit my Olympus E-P-1 MTF camera MECHANICALLY- yes it fits unfortunately, the camera tells me "this lens is not supported" This must be the only MTF lens that is not Panasonic / Olympus cross compatible It seems it only works with Panasonic Lumix G2, GF2, GH2 with on board software that works with 3D from this lens other than that, it looks like a nice piece of glass!
Summary: got this for like 60 bucks, so I cant complain about the price. works best when you subject is close to lens. pics of the grand canyon might not be so impressive, but you standing in front of the canyon would give you a better feeling of depth. no video is a downer, did see that you can hack around that limitation, but haven't done that. field if view is smaller than I expected though. bit of a gimmick but for the price i'm okay with that.
Just check it see if this is compatible with your camera

Summary: Got this for my wife's Olympus camera as I was told by a camera store that it would work Found out from the tech department at Olympus that 3d is only done in a software on your computer not the lens You will Get a error code on a Olympus camera
