Olympus WCON-P01 overview

  • 1Description

The Olympus WCON-P01 Wide Converter lens is designed specifically for use with the Micro Four Thirds PEN cameras, and in particular, with the M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II lens. The WCON-P01 will give you a wider angle of view to shoot your images, making it ideal for sweeping vistas or for fitting everything in the shot in an enclosed space. This Wide Converter fits the aforementioned 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II kit lens, and when attached provides an 11mm focal length and an 89° angle of view. Magnification when attached to the lens is 0.1x.

Wide-Angle Perspective
If you like taking great pictures while out on the town - or during a scenic drive in the countryside - the wide converter will give you a whole new perspective. Using your existing kit lens, you can extend the range of your PEN to take amazing wide-angle pictures with stunning depth of field and interesting perspectives.
 

  • Fits more of the scene into a single image

  • Gives a wide-angle perspective to your kit lens

  • Takes fascinating photos of night-time scenes and landscapes

    Olympus WCON-P01 reviews

    WCON-P01 Wide Converter is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, convenient, useful I purchased this converter when I purchased an E-PL2 two lens kit. I did not have budget to buy the Oly 9-18mm wide zoom at the same time, so I thought I would try this converter as I wanted something wider than the lit lens. The resolution is good, but it suffers from flare when a strong light source hits the lens at just the right angle. This is common for an add-on converter. One must be careful when there are strong light sources or the sun off to the side. At the end of the day, it is a very useful and convenient accessory - and it attaches quickly via the bayonet adapter on the lens. I will still buy the wide zoom when I can afford it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cheap Option This converter changes the effective FOV from 28mm (35mm equivalent) to about 22mm (35mm equivalent) I use it for group shots and travel where the extra FOV really helps to get more in your picture. If you cannot afford the 9-18mm expensive option then this is good choice. AVOID other converters as they are not of the same quality. Images remain sharp in the corners and there is no difference in light transmission with or without the converter. It serves its purpose well for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive Wide Angle Performance My version arrived defective but I'm not going to judge it on that fact. I hate when people do that! My adapter did not lock into place on my kit lens. If you have the kit lens and cannot afford something wider buy one. For the price it's a no brainer. Even though I returned my version and bought the 12mm lens instead the performance was good. Examining my test images taken with this adapter I had no issues. The images were sharp and the borders looked pretty good. Quality wise it felt good and would of kept it if it locked into place. But I love my 12mm lens.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tough to attach at first Bought this as a small and cheap alternative to the 9-18 mFT lens (and instead of using my full 4/3rds 9-18). I had read about it being interesting to attach, but it took me 3-4 attempts before I finally twisted it enough to actually click into the locked position. Works well enough to get a bit wider FOV, but the image is definitely quite soft especially in the corners.
    Date published: 2013-07-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price, Great Product I am currently traveling across Europe, and this WCON-P01 converter has proved to be a perfect combination of price, portability, and utility. If you are a consumer looking for a small device to expand the capabilities of your PEN camera without adding bulk or spending a large sum of money, I highly recommend going with the CON series. Also, B&H offers it at a cheaper rate than on the Olympus website, making this purchase even better. At this price, the product obviously has its drawbacks, most notably, the time it takes to fumble around with removing a UV (or other) filter from the 14-42mm lens and replacing it with the converter (which doesn't fit properly with the bayonet device if the filter is left attached). Still, for the price and portability, this is an excellent buy.
    Date published: 2012-08-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the work perfectly Using it on the kit lens with my oly epl5 and it works perfectly. Widest at 11mm wide enough without much noticeable distortion. Good for time where 14mm is just not wide enough in group shots. Metal and good solid glass construction. It does not effect the AF performance.
    Date published: 2013-01-03
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok image quality at cheap price Pros: Looks good Acceptable image quality at reasonable price No noticeable vignetting when used with 14-42mm lens Cons: Can only be used with 14-42mm lens Other: It can be used on Olympus 45mm f1.8 lens but fits loose and loss of sharpness is evident.
    Date published: 2013-04-30
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from convenient and inexpensive It's a simple and easy way to have that extra wide view without having to have an extra lens. I take it with my ep3 on my ride to work each day.
