The PTMC-01 macro conversion lens has been specially customized for the Olympus underwater cases with a screw thread of 67mm. If you are using the PT-EP01 with the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6, just mount the macro adapter (PMLA-EP01) to the PT-EP01 and you can add on the macro lens (PTMC-01) for special macro underwater photography with a magnification up to x2.

I got this on June/2013. I had the macro lens for a while and waited for this item to be available. I had read some reviews where a lot of people complain about the fitting. But contrary to those reviews, mine has a tight fit (tighter fit when compared to the PL1 port cover). So, it feels quite secure. Also, as a recommendation, I suggest to change the lanyard. It is a thin one and I suggest getting a much stronger one (recently while diving with a lot of kelp, my PL1 port cover got stuck between the vegetation and I lost it). The lens, oncemounted to this adapter, feels also weel secure. I suggest also to get a protective filter (UV, whatever) to cover your macro lens.
Very good lens for UW macro shots. I'm using this in combination with the Patima housing for the Canon G12 and find it very nice to use. The macro photographing is geting easy as the object gets "closer" using this lens.
