    My adapter arrives soon. So, in my mind, the adapter should fit the 18-55 as it's the same as the 16mm. What does it do on that lens.
    I know it's corrected for the 16 but, hey... Ya gotta try things to find out what happens...
    It could be an interesting result.
    Anyone try this yet?

    No sir! It converts the 16 (24 FOV) into an 18mm FOV.
    So, it should then convert the zoomie to around a
    20mm - 60mm actual FOV. Dunno?

    That would give you a 20-80 on the zoomie with/without the adapter.

    Not too far from Philly
    Real Name:
    you should be able to figure it out...
    Not the same as the fisheye - attaches the same way but pairs with the 16 to create something like a 12 - or the same as the 9 in the m43 9-18.

    It plays hell on the kit lens - here it is wide open, at 35mm, and fully extended - you could say its not optimized, but that would be understatement:
