    </br>Description</br> I'm selling this because I finally bit the bullet and bought the 7-14mm lens. The Olympus WCON-P01 is in barely used true mint condition.

    The WCON-P01 has been modified so that it not only mounts on the Olympus 14-42 II and IIR lenses, as it was originally designed to, but it ALSO mounts cleanly on the 14mm f2.5 lens.

    The WCON-P01 is a 0.79x wide converter, that makes the 14mm lens or the 14mm setting on the kit zoom into a rectilinear 11mm f2.5 lens. It does not vignette at 14mm. It does add a slight bit of barrel distortion, but nothing at all like a fisheye converter.

    The exact details of this modification are as follows - Importantly, this modification can trivially easily be UN-done if the owner wishes to, which would return the WCON back to it's as-new state:

    1) A rubber band was used as a gasket on the back of the WCON.

    2) This gasket allows a carefully chosen 52mm filter ring, with the filter glass removed, to be snugly seated over the back of the WCON. When properly fit as this filter was to the back of the WCON, the 52mm filter does not interfere with the original bayonet mounting of the WCON onto the Oly 14-42 (versions II and IIR only) kit zoom lenses as it was originally designed to. But the 52mm filter ring now allows the WCON to be fitted to a lens with 52mm filter threads, screwed on just the way one would screw on a 52mm filter.

    3) On top of the 52mm filter ring, and additional, larger rubber band is used to tighten the fit of the filter ring onto the back of the WCON. So this entire modification uses no glue, and is only held on by a couple of rubber bands, wrapped around the back of the WCON. The fit is tight and snug, but can easily be removed if you want to, to return the WCON to it's as new condition.

    4) Because the 14mm lens has 46mm threads, a 46-52mm step up ring is included that is screwed onto the 14mm lens, to allow the modified WCON to easily be screwed on and off of the lens. While this step up ring is on the 14mm lens, the original pinch front lens cap still works and still fits over the lens.

    The combined lens + the wide converter is an 11mm f2.5 lens that weighs a mere 5 ounces.

    If one buys the Modified WCON alone, you will also get the WCON-P01 instructions, a 46-52mm step up ring, the front cap, the original rear cap, and a replacement 52mm screw on rear cap that fits the modified WCON - the original rear cap does not fit as long as the modification is in place.
