    I believe I have seen that others have used this macro "converter" on the Oly 45mm lens. Olympia customer service also indicated that it is possible. However, I ordered it and it doesn't fit the lens. Am I missing something?

    i believe you need to attach the included (MA-P01) macro adapter.

    If you remove the trim ring it should connect via the bayonet hood mount. I haven't used the combo myself but I seem to remember samples posted on :43:.

    Thanks to you both! The macro adapter is attached - it has "female" threads as does the lens so does not attach. I did not receive any bayonet attachment with the lens so I'm out of luck there as well.

    Frustrating...

    Yikes! Trim ring removed, problem solved. Never even knew it was there!

    Good thing as I'd not even realized that I'd not received the hood with my lens. So... Calling Amazon...

    The hood doesn't come with the lens so save your time. You can buy the expensive hood from Olympus, one of the identical (less expensive) knock-offs, or look around for a screw-in hood. I bought one of the knock-offs from Amazon.

    Well then you'll realize that you don't get a lens hood with that lens...
    edit - beat me to it

    Funny... The photos of the lens on Amazon show a hood included. I'll see what they say.
