Macro ring on Olympus Pen EP-1

Ever wondered what those cheap macro rings that screw onto the front of your lens are like? No? Well I did so bought one from Amazon for £11. It also came with a Fisheye adapter.

Sitting around tonight I saw the Pen all alone on the shelf so I thought I'd see what the screw-on rings were like.

Well they work, in that it is possible to go very close to the subject, almost touching it with the lens actually, focussing is by moving lens until the desired focus is achieved.

I was actually impressed by the results in a sort of LensBaby effects way.

Images tweaked a bit and resized in Lr.
