    $10 for BOTH at a local pawn shop, $25 in adapter rings. These are the old aux lenses for the Olympus IS series bridge cameras (among others). The Oly B300 now fits my 40-150R and the B28 fits both the 17mm and 14-42R! I love it when these things have "normal" non-proprietary threads.

    Kinda rainy here right now, so pics over the weekend.

    Yes. Olympus OEM. Supposedly high quality in their day, and expensive.

    I just found a B-300, B-28, and B-MACRO at a swap meet, LNIB, for $20.

    I passed on the IS-3, also in-box.

    Not sure if I'm going to keep them or sell them... Would the wide-angle be any good for Milky Way photos on the 17/1.8?
