You may want to read my review of this camera and housing combo which contains images taken with the 67 mm macro lens adapter and an Inon M-67-165 close-up lens which is more powerful than the Olympus C/U lens.

in the Oly adapter.
About the usability: I like the setup for its extreme convenience; the adapter fits snug onto my housing
and snaps on/off with great ease. Typically I leave the lens on the port during the dive; if I take it off,
the length of the (thin, but very strong) tether loop of the adapter is just enough to let me drape the
adapter+lens over my right wrist, so it does not drag along coral etc when I'm taking photos.
About which lens (or lenses) to use, I found this comparison on Inon's website very useful:
Inon's comparison of one/two wet macro lenses
For the type of images I have been able to get using this setup, you can check out my recent
trip report from Ambon (macro destination): Trip report+pix, Ambon, Apr 2012
