    My Panny 45 mm needs some fairly major surgery as it has stopped focussing. So, to cover the macro gap while it is away I got hold of one of Olympus's macro convertors. It works with the 14-42 Mk2 and 40-150 (which I have).

    I was initially a little off put by the construction. It is plastic and very light. I suspect the lens really needs to be protected. However, the results are better than expected, although DOF is wafer thin with the 40-150. If you are on a weight/space budget it is worth considering for macro, not least because it works with both Oly kit zooms.
