    I have an Olympus 25mm 1.8 and I would like to do macro photography with it. Can anyone suggest a good filter? I know there are a few out there but I don't know if they are compatible with this particular lens like the Raynox dcr-250 or the Marumi filters. Also, has anybody used the mcon-p02 macro converter on this lens?

    Thanks!

    The mcon-p02 will work on all of the following lenses.
    M.14-42EZ, M.14-42 IIR, M.45mm f1.8, M.25mm f1.8, M.17mm f1.8 and M.12mm f2.0
    Not sure how good it is though.

    The MCON-P02 is a 2x filter. If you want to get closer than that, the Marumi filters are 3x and 5x, the Raynox 150 is 4.8x and the Raynox 250 is 8x.
