    Just got my E-PL5 with the kit lens today. What is the purpose of the detachable ring on the front of the lens?
    Thanks, Cathy

    It can be removed so that accessories, such as a hood or close-up adaptor lens, can be fitted into the bayonet mounting that attaches the ring.

    Ah ha! Thanks for explaining it to me. So it's just sort of a bayonet cover.
    Regards.
