Indeed - you need to buy a step-up ring. You can find them everywhere - Amazon, B&H, Ebay, etc - you need a 49mm to 58mm step up ring. (The 49mm is the lens' filter thread size and the 58mm is the DH's thread size).

Thanks for the info, but see below.

Be aware on that company you bought the DH1758 from - if they at any point call you to say it's out of stock but they'll send you another unit that's just as good - get your money back and run!

They (theestoreonline) did call me back and say it was out of stock. I had originally called them to confirm it was in stock! They didn't try to sell me anything else, but said they would be receiving new stock from Sony soon. I said I doubted they would receive it because it's no longer manufactured. The sales person was polite and seemingly was unaware. I cancelled order without problems (I hope!). Now what do I do?!

Below are a couple of recent photos using the OMD-E5 and 75- 300mm (150-600mm equiv) from-
