M43 lenses are smaller. Measure them before you complain. I found this out when I tried to put the 35mm macro, mounted on the 4/3 converter, into my PT-EPL1 underwater housing. It would not fit in the lens tunnel. I am bummed. As of today there is no native macro lens for the EPL1.

I shoot a lot of macro underwater, so I have to swap in a close-up lens on the front. The lens fits in an adapter that press fits on the port, and does not inspire confidence in its secure mounting. Oh well, limping along until our friends at Oly get the design out.
