Re: I bought the DMW-GFC1 fisheye converter ...
  • Sorry!

...about 5 months ago to use on completely different non-m43 set-up, (I'll explain later.) Last week I bought a 14/2.5 (for my EPL1) and of course tried the converter on this new lens which it was intended for. I found the results to excellent and perhaps equal to the Sammy. The quality must be a match for the 14mm lens, which is very high. Worth the price.

Now I mentioned another camera I'm using the DMW-GFC1 on, and that's my NEX3 with a Sigma 19mm f2.8 lens! This works just as well if not better as there is of the curving efect. The field of view is around 105-110 degrees on the Sigma as opposed to 120 degrees on the 14/2.5/ Olympus.

So I'm getting double duty out of GFC-1
