    Well I have received my Raynox DCR 250 lens, it cost me £35 and is worth every penny!

    I have done some quick tests on the 14-45 & 45-200mm lenses - I put the GF1 on a table top tripod and used the self timer to avoid camera shake.

    All images were taken wide open:

    I am very impressed with this lens adaptor and it is great value for money.

    Very good Ian its a quality optic being Acromat....
    For sure guess you would be pleased.

    Its very powerful with the 45-200 at the 200 end, I have also used the Nikon 4T
    (52mm) 2.9 diopter, its less hot easier to hand hold.

    Either way its really a great way to do macros without the PL45 :smile:

    Woo Hoo! I am convinced, and on the strength of those photos I went over to eBay and bought one.

    Nice work Iansky.

    Thanks All, it is money well spent - I bought mine through Amazon and received it in 3 days.

    I will post more images as I shoot them but it is definately a quality product and well made for the price - I can highly recommend it but it does need to be used with a tripod!

    Hi to you all that bought the Raynox DCR-250!
    I'll probably buy one of those for my new Olympus E-PL1.

    I have one question though.

    Would I need a 40,5 mm to 52 mm step-up ring to use it with the 14-42mm kit lens?

    Thanks in advance,

    acmatos

    The lens comes with a spring controlled adaptor that fits all lenses with filter sizes 52 - 62mm so it fits the 14-45 without any problem.

    Thanks for your answer.

    And yes, I see that the Panasonic GF1 14-45 kit lens has a 52mm filter size.

    But the 14-42 kilt lenses of the Olympus E-PL1 has a 40,5mm filter size.

    I guess that a 40,5 to 52mm step-up ring will do the job, but I'd like to confirm before I buy the Raynox.

    Anyone tried it already with the E-PL1?

    Regards
