Nice add-on

Glad I opted to go ahead and get this as an add-on to my housing. Can't zoom at all without it. Tricky to get it on just right but once you do it stays put.

Does not fit 14-42mm II R lens

This will not fit the 14-42mm II R lens. You need to get the PPZR-EP02, which is also sold on adorama.

Does not fit all Olympus 14-42

I had to get Olympus PPZR-EP02 Zoom Ring 9-18mm for PT-EP01 for my 14-42; I think my 14-42 is 2nd generation lens.

Will work but only with the correct Lens

By

This Gear only fits the older version of the 14-42mm ED Lens. If the Lens used is the Olympus 14-42mm/3.5-5.6 II R, then use the PPZR-EP02 Gear. If you purchase the E-PL1 with Underwater case kit, this is the gear you will use.

Questions about this item:

BRUCE C  I just purchased the Olympus E-PL3 camera and have the 14-42 mm zoom gear but the diameter of the zoom gear is too big for the lens. Which zoom gear I should be using?
RENATO T  There are two versions of 14-42 lens. One has a bigger diameter than yours and supposed to be a better lens. I bought this zoom gear for my bigger diameter lens to match EPL1 and PT-EP01. Note that the bigger diameter lens came out first along with PT-EP01 housing and zoom gear. I'm not sure if zoom gears for the new smaller diameter lens is even available as the PT-EP01 was discontinued shortly after. Make sure PT-EP01 will fits E-PL3. I think you need PT-EP05 but I could be wrong. Sorry I can't help you or direct you which zoom gear fits your lens.
Andrew C  How do you determine which lens you have (the old or the new)? Thanks!
RICHARD D  Easiest way is to look at the front bezel of the lens. The original (old) version lists a filter thread diameter of 40.5mm. That is the one that uses this zoom gear. The newer ones ("M.Zuiko 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 II" and "M.Zuiko 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 II R") both have a filter diameter of 37mm, and use same the zoom ring that is listed for the 9-18mm lens. If your lens came as the "kit" lens with your E-PL1, odds are REAL good that you have the old version. Images of all of them are here: www(dot)four-thirds(dot)org/en/microft/standard(dot)html
