Olympus m4/3 compatibility

Amazon Customer, Amazon
3 January 2014
  • 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.

  • Summary: I don't know what this is, but it is the worst purchase. It doesn't seem to help take better photos of macro subjects.

Panasonic 3D lens only for certain Lumix cameras, not all MTF cameras

Hans Schaefer "VideoKojak", Amazon
26 August 2013
  • 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...

3d for cheap

R. Meadows, Amazon

  • 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.

Buyer beware : Amazon is wrong on compatibility

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: This is not a review of the quality of the lens it self I'm not bashing amazon, just wanted to bring up the point on fit of the lens on micro 4/3 camera and amazon's " will this fit my camera" guide. 1. To Amazon's credit, it will "fit" your micro 4/3 camera since the lens is a micro 4/3 mount 2.

Big Drawbacks...Some Strengths

J. Vincent Legg, Amazon
24 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this (at a much higher price) when it was new, in January of 2011. I was aware of all the limitations (needs lots of sun, no zooming, no video, lo-res, etc.) but really wanted to try out 3D. I didn't have any means to view the .mpo files I took, back then...thus the delay.

Lousy effect, photo only, no video

ScOObydoo, Amazon
3 October 2012
  • Summary: I'm clearly an idiot, because I had assumed that at the very least, this lens would support video - sadly it doesn't... You get really bad 3D photos only. The 3D effect is so bad, but without 3D glasses, you can barely notice any difference with a regular photo.

Defective

S. Perkins ".s", Amazon
17 May 2012
  • Summary: I was excited to get this lens but disappointed to find it simply didn't work on my DMC-GH1 camera. No matter what I did, I would get the dreaded "Please check that your lens is attached correctly" message.

Easy macro 3D

William Moll, Amazon
17 March 2012
  • 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.

3D works well for me

khood, Amazon
17 March 2012
  • Summary: I am very pleased that I chose to ignore some of the negative reviews I read about this product. I found the lens simple to use. Vertical shots are not the best but they are passable.
