#380777 Oly m.Zuiko 9-18 not working in PT-EP05L with PPZR-EP02 zoom gear

If it were me, I'd either go with the cheapest AOI or the Zen.

With the sale price on the Zen, you get the metal port and glass for cheaper than the AOI version.

The Zen is very well made.

#372183 Any comments or experience with AOI Ports?

I would suggest you look at the ZEN WA-100.  It is only $375 now and I can attest that it is nicely made.  I've used it for a while with both the epl2 & now epl7.


I could not find the specs on the dimensions of the WA-100, but I suspect it and the AOI are within millimeters of each other.

I say that because even though you might be able to fit all those lens into the AOI, I don't think all of them will work very well underwater.

Zen lists the lens that the port is designed for, which is the kit 14-42 & 9-18.  I and others have successfully used the 60mm in that dome also.


I have been happy with my AOI for the 8mm.

So, I think both ZEN and AOI make good products.

My point is don't base your decision on the list of AOI supported lens, because I just don't think it's reality.

It's a good thing we got a separate mirrorless forum for such engaging topics.
