The macro lens +12.5 is part of fisheye. Either you buy fisheye with suited thread or you use (like I) a cheap filter adapter ring.

Fisheye (0.25x or 0.2x) you get for ~ $55 - $79 with deales or ebay.

f.e. fisheye 0.25x

With my G1 I use it with a 58mm-52mm adapter. My Oly 510 has lenses with 58mm.

You can work with every camera/lens - you get a full circle (circular fisheye), if lens is ~ 28mm (4/3 = 14 mm, because of crop=2)


fisheye with macro-lens (else not usable) / adapter 58mm/52mm / G1

Exactly what lenses did you use for this setup? I see you have: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230325996316&fromMakeT rack=true&ssPageName=VIP:watchlink:top:en

and the you need an adapter, right? Would this one work: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/566410-REG/Raynox_RA5852_RA5852_Adapter_Ring_52mm.html ?

And the do you need the micro 4/3 adapter: http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-e...00000000005702 ?

And is that it or am I wrong/missing something?

Thanks in advance for the help.

All right

You do not need the Pana FT/mFT adapter, because fisheye is screwed on front of the lens.

G1 with kit lens 14-45 has 52mm, if you buy ---> fisheye with 52mm you do not need an adapter ring

Oh, duh. I get it now. Thanks.

Oh, and one more question which adapter(s) do you use?

I'm using original Pana adapter and from Rong Jin ("RJ") FT/mFT, EOS/mFT, Konica/mFT adapter ... using more than 15 lenses ... each cent worth.
