    I was pleasantly surprised upon trying my .45X and 2.2X Vivitar lenses on my 14-42mm kit lens. They work rather well tho the .45X alas vignettes at the 14mm end

    My experience is that any wide converter that's wider than a 0.7x factor is going to do that. That's one reason that Olympus' own wide converter is a 0.8x, and the Sony wide converter that also works well is a 0.75x factor.

    Had the lenses already and was worth a try. I'm the experimenting sort, that's how I got into trying MFT in fact ;)
