    saw some on the web...wonder how they snap together?

    cos...firstly 14mm is 46mm thread...
    and fisheye( VCL-ECF1) is a 49mm and meant for Sony Nex's 16mm pancake.

    anyone tried these 2 together can show how its done?

    Mind scaling these image down a bit? They are currently huge, and stretch the screen quite a bit.

    Yeah, that is a lot better. If you could swap these photos for the ones on page 1, it wouldn't stretch the page out so much. There is also a way in Amin's FAQ that talks about how to have it resize using html coding when you add it to your post.

    I hope you don't mind if I add that question here: from what I understand, the distance between lens and the wide angle lens affects the image quality. Is there a way to determine the optimal difference - other than trial and error? It seems to work with this setup, I am wondering about the Nikon WC-E68 0.68 wide angle lens which - I think - even has a 46mm thread and should fit the 14mm Pany.

    Hmm not sure about that lens but so happens the converter just "locked on" on the thread groove of the 14mm.check out the 2nd post.someone posted the libk.that's the first guy that fit on his omd.been walking handing the camera with the 2 items on it...still hanging well.lol!

    Price check. For USA, the above with a step down ring and the Panasonic DMW-GFC1 are about the same price online ($136 USD). The Sony VCL-ECF1 goes for $109 USD at amazon. I realize price differentials may be different in other countries, but here it is small enough that I would rank the Panasonic first. You get guaranteed imaging compatibility. It can be removed/replaced with your eyes closed (although the Nikon also has this).

    Disclaimer being that I don't own any of the above UWA converters, but I do have the Panasonic GWC1 WA converter, which I think is very nice.
