.....

For sure does not fit to threaded/led light ports with housings PT-EP05L PT-EP0L. Should work with others Olympus housings.

Hi.

The Olympus 60mm will fit on the current PT-EP10 housing port but it will not fit on the PT_EP05L or PR-EP06L housings. I'm not entirely sure about the older M4/3 housings. on pictures it looks the same as the one used on the EP-10 housing but unfortunately I do not any older housings kicking around to measure it.

On the EP05L and 06L housings you can use the Panasonic 45mm macro and have the option of attaching external macro lenses like the SubSee +5 and +10 or the Inon UCL 165M67

Does the lack of image stabilisation affect using this lens for macro?
