    I saw this strange super wide lens addon on Ebay and grabbed it. The wide part can be unscrewed and what's left becomes a macro lens. The wide part has some kind of IR coating on the front element. The vignette disappears when I zoom to ~24mm, but I kinda liked the effect at 14mm.

    Only fits my 14-42 II R with 37mm filter thread. It also has some 46mm thread higher up the barrel, so it needs a lens with lots of space between the filter and the front element. Definitely not a good design.
