    The II revision of the Oly kit lens supports the Oly wide and tele converters via the filter threads. Not sure if you can get it to work with the rev1.

    The mark II supports a wide, a fish eye, and a macro via bayonet connection, not threads. OP was looking for a tele convertor which sandwiches between camera and lens and 2x converter doubles the lens...14-42 becomes 28-84.

    I have not seen a tele-converter for the kits lens no matter what version.
    Maybe someone else has though...

    Ah, I thought the Oly TCON was compatible. My mistake. I think converters that sandwich between the lens and body are problematic because the lenses are all electronic.
