    Just wanted to share a couple of examples with the MCON P01 close up filter on the Oly 45mm 1.8. Just got the MCON last week, and decided to play around with it a bit last night.

    It's incredibly light - seems like the whole thing (including the lens?) is made of plastic. Looks a bit ridiculous on the tiny 45, but it seems to work pretty well. Nice to have in the bag for close ups, as it doesn't take up much space. Certainly can't beat the price.

    These were both taken in RAW, and processed in LR 4.3. The flowers are painted/dyed, so they really are that bright and saturated.

    One at f3.2:
    flowers-1-XL.

    And one wide open, just to see how it works:
    flowers-2-XL.

    The 45 is not listed as a lens this works with. Is it 46mm so it can screw on the 45?

    No, it's a bayonet style adapter - you simply remove the lens ring from the front of the 45mm 1.8 (have to admit that I didn't even realize this piece came off the 45 until I read about it on a dpreview thread), and then attach the close up lens in it's place. So it attaches much like a lens hood would attach.
