In Topic: INON UFL-M150 ZM80 Micro Fisheye Lens on OMD5 / Nauticam

05 January 2015 - 12:55 AM

I have the 45 mm , but from Panasonic and the 60 mm from Olympus of course .

I don't see any interest to try to use a micro fish eye lense which is built for macro wide angle  with a  macro lense  especially the 60 mm from Olympus   which is a film 120 mm .

On the macro mode position of the 12-50 at 43 mm it dont' work , so I suppose that it'll be the same with the Panasonic 45 mm that I own also but I have forget in France and I 'm staying in the Philippines untill May ,.but I'm a sure that it won't work , the camera can't make the focus through a macro lense and the micro fish eye .

I've use it with the 12-50 in between 40 and 50 mm ( no vignetting ) ( 80 to 100 mm film ) and that match with what tell Inon .

I'm not very enthusiatic at the idea that I'm going to show not good picture , anyway if it can help you !!

This one is not cropped , no change in any way  , 44 mm with the 12-50




This one also not cropped , although the subject is not  really CFWA , taken also at 44 on the 12-50



This one has been taken at 39 mm , you can see the vignetting appear no crop 




Of course if you are in the blue ....



The good thing with that combination , is that you can obtain suns not too burn !! I wonder why ...    ;-)


This last one at 50 mm , not cropped as the other of course

Yes , I've try it with the 12-50 and the EM1 ,( because I own one that I use with my Canon S90 ). 

It cannot work with any macro lense , probably because of the focusing distance . It's very pleasant to use , but the results are a bit disappointing , because there is a lot of blurr on the side of the picture even with very small aperture .So it don't work with the 12-50 on maco mode at 43 mm .

You must also zoom nearby 50 mm to avoid vignetting , but even you get a nice wide angle 

It is a shame that we can't get a better quality of images , as the micro fish eye lense is very exciting to use ....


Inon has put the 12-50 and the EM5 in his list of compatibility  with the  INON UFL-M150 ZM80

Hello Phil


Is the
DP-170-N85-II  compatible with the 12-50 Olympus ??  Thank



Zen Underwater ports for Nauticam housings have changed to correspond to this new naming system:

DP-170-N85-II is the new version (the one I have) and has an additional 30mm of extension on top of the original. So a total of 60mm of extension, plus the ID of the port body is 77mm allowing the larger diameter lenses such as the Olympus 12-40 or the Sony 10-18 to be used. The DP-170-N85 II is compatible with:
Panasonic 7-14mm f/4
Olympus m.Zuiko 9-18mm f/4-5.6
Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8
Olympus m.Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8
Sony 10-18mm f/4 E-mount
