    Is the lens still available? Why are you selling it? Where in Ca are you? I am in the Bay Area.

    Thanks

    The lens is still available. I'm selling it because I need the money and I prefer to take macro shots. Just outside of LA so shipping would be swift.

    I have only seen one picture taken with the lens, and that was on a store website. It seemed to have a lot of curvature distortion, like a fish eye lens. Is that your experience with it?

    Do you have any sample photos?

    I want to put it on my new Xz-1. I am off to Fiji in 1 week. Can it be put on and off under water? i called Olympus to ask a few questions, and they did not now anything about the lens.

    Thanks

    Dave

    Here is a comparison of WAL for the XZ-1. http://www.scubaboard.com/forums/olympus-outlet/386884-xz-1-pt-050-wide-angle-lenses.html


    and some pics posted by another board member here. Look at his second and third posts as they are very nice pics. http://www.scubaboard.com/forums/olympus-outlet/379395-xz-1-pictures-maledives.html

    It's a wet lens and can be put on and taken off underwater with no problem. It gives 100degree of coverage and is a wonderful piece of glass.

    If you want it send me a private message with your PayPal email address and I'll send you a money request. Shipping is included but if you want something expedited you'll have to pay extra.

    Thanks for your interest.
