I don't have personal experience with it, but I seem to remember people trying to figure out a way to do it without any real success.


Search here and on scubaboard and see what you find.


People have had success with macro wet lens.

Has anyone actually had success with add on WA lens on m4/3?

If I were you I'd just use what you have until such time as you can purchase a port/lens combo that fits your budget and makes sense.

I'm a big fan of the Zen port as it allows you to use 3 lens, 9-18, kit lens and 60mm macro.

I use .19 to infinity behind the Zen dome and it performs well for me on an epl2.

now that I have an epl7, I expect it will focus quicker.


Sometimes it might take a little bit to focus on a subject when you first start to look at it.

Then it gets better, because it's already focused once.

So, if there is something skittish and you know approximately how far away you'll be, try to prefocus on something a similar distance before moving in, so lens is at a close starting point.

If something like a nudibranch, no big deal as it's not moving fast.

Note that the 12-40 is currently on sale for $799.


I got extremely lucky and picked one up from olympus refurbed and with 20% discount.  Price was $519 + tax.

The build quality is very nice.  I haven't taken enough photos with it yet to comment on that aspect.

I do not plan on using this underwater for all the reasons listed in the thread.

I didn't know that about the later cameras and the 14-42 & 12-50.  Very interesting.  Makes those lens much more appealing to me now.
