PS This is the wet lens and the adapter that fits onto the outside of the standard PEN port.

You might want to consider other options. I had this lens on an Olympus housing for the E PL1 and did not like it at all. It gave very little additional magnification or working distance with the 14-42 lens. Maybe its different for the 12-50 lens if thats what you have. I far preferred the subsee diopters, which also fit on the Oly adapter

Thanks for the advice. Actually, there are plenty of options for the lens. A good lens at a favourable price seems to be this +10 http://www.reefwreck...wet-lenses.html which only costs 95USD (plus 24USD shipping fron Australia/Indonesia). The problen is to get hold of an adapter at a reasonable price. 45USD from Optical Ocean Sales is fine (it costs 50USD from other US sources) but by the time I've paid their shipping charges and Swedish Customs have added 25% tax and 15USD administrative fee I'd end up paying about three times as much as it costs in the US. There are only a couple of sources here in Europe and their prices are also exorbitant. That is why I'm looking for a used adapter. Unless, of course, some kind pewrson offers to get me a new one from their local Backscatter, Reef Photo shop or the like and post it to me for a reasonable fee ;-

UPDATE: I've just found, and bought, an adapter on e-bay, from a Japanese seller. Price $58 + $3 shipping. So problem solved
