Hi all
I've recently upgraded my u/w kit to the Olympus EPL3 camera & PT-EP05L housing. For now I will be using the EPL3 kit lens (14-42mm). Also I bought the UCL-165 M67 macro lens. From my old Olympus compact camera u/w setup I still have the UCL-165AD macro lens.

There is an adapter "10 Bar Inon AD To M67 Mount Adapter" which can be used to "attach the lens to a standard 67mm threaded lens port on a housing". Can it also be used to stack a UCL-165AD with a UCL-165 M67 lens?

ie I would have : PT-EP05L housing --> UCL-165 M67 --> 10BAR adapter-->UCL 165AD

Has anybody tried this and if it works, are the results any good?

If this doesn't work I can sell the UCL-165AD on ebay :)

thx

David

It is worth a try, many people stack FIT style diopters. Guess you will have to be within 2-4 inches of the subject to get focus.

I have the 10bar adapter myself with a pair of AD mount macro lenses attached direct to the olympus macro adapter on my EPL-2 and that works fine. Seem to remember trying the AD mount lenses plus adapter on my fiance's EPL3 directly but getting some vignetting issues, though this may not be a problem with the 165 screw in first as you describe.
