    Hi

    I'm looking for some advice.

    I was thinking about getting the Olympus FCON-P01 fisheye converter but it is listed on Olympus website as only working on the Mark II 14-42mm lens.

    I have got the Mark I lens.

    I believe the thread on the new kit lens is 37mm, so I wondered if I got a 40.5mm to 37mm step-down ring and put that on my Mark I lens whether the fisheye converter would work as it's meant to (ie it's optimised for a 14mm lens I believe)

    Any thoughts on whether this will work?

    Thanks :)

    Pretty sure the converter is a bayonet mount, not threaded.

    If you want to use the fish eye or wide angle converter you'll have to get a mkII OR mkII R version, as far as I know. They both require the bayonet mount, unless you can find a 37mm to bayonet mount step up ring/converter. Which I don't believe exists.

    Shame.
