Does anyone know whether the Raynox RT5264P lens holder will mount the B300 or just the Raynox lense range....??

Cheers Mat

Looks like you'd need a 52-55 step ring with it Mat :

Thanks for your very swift response....strange this says 52mm, as I'm pretty sure the OlyB300 is a 55mm fixing.....hhmmm ????

That's right. You'll need to buy a 52-55mm stepping ring to fit between the adaptor and the B300. Just do a quick search on "stepping ring" on 'you know whatBay' to see examples.

I believe the Raynox DCR2020Pro converter comes with adaptors to fit to 52mm and 58mm filter threads so that would be fine with this adaptor as is. Must say, though, I'm one of those who's not terribly keen on that converter based on what I've seen.
