        Since I bought this fisheye converter I have had it attached to my camera more often then I haven't. Images turn out great. it does add a considerable amount of size, but unless you are going very light and small, then its worth it.

          I like the options that this unit offers me at the price and convienience that this lens provides me with. Build quality seems great and it is quite compact which definately helps. The hardest part to get used to is how different it looks compared to my other lens. It is a lot of fun...and recommend that you buy one.

            If you're on a budget and want a decent fisheye perspective, this convertor is great. It is well constructed and converts the kit 14-42mm lens well.

            If you're after a light camera bag setup, this convertor, as well as the macro and wide convertors, stack well into a single lens spot in your camera bag and give your 14-42mm lens some added versatility

              This is an awesome add on when shooting cityscapes and architecture. You really can bend lines with it and get some great effects. With your kit lens wide it's especially dramatic - on the tele side you can get a much more conservative wide angle effect. Nicely built - metal housing and glass element - this is my favorite Oly accessory.

              Ultra-wide for a low price

              By Things Above

              from Raleigh NC

              About Me Photo Enthusiast

              Pros

              • Cheap ultra wide
              • Consistent Output
              • Easily Interchangeable
              • Lightweight

              Cons

              • Cannot use a filter
              • Edge distortion
              • No carry bag

              Best Uses

              • Landscape/Scenery
              • Weddings/Events

              Comments about Olympus FCON-P01 Fish Eye Converter:

              Although it's marketed as a Fisheye it offers relatively minor fisheye distortion. Indoors you will see distortion and you can provoke the distortion by shooting at extreme angles (up/down).

              But for landscapes, when held level, it works as an ultra-wide. It is relatively sharp in the center but sharpness falls off dramatically near the corners. There is also some CA with high contrast images but it's not too bad. Dirt and spots on the exterior of the adapter are quite evident in resulting images so you have to keep it clean. It doesn't come with a bag which was a bummer so the "press fit" end caps have to be reattached anytime your not using it. It fits tight up against the kit lens front element so there is no room to use a filter between the kit lens and the adapter.

              It bayonets easily on-off the kit lens so that you can easily twist it off the lens and hold it in your hand when you don't want the adapter for a shot or two then place it back on.

              It's an inexpensive and compact method of achieving relatively good quality ultra-wide shots and, when pressed, fisheye appearance shots.

              I have posted many shots using this adapter on my flickr page for user ThingsAbove (flickr dot com slash photos slash thingsabove). The images are tagged FCON-P01.

              Overall I'm quite pleased with the lens. It provides an inexpensive, albeit lower quality, alternative to the Olympus 9-18mm.
