it would be good to get one that works specifically for your camera. with others, you might experience more distortion. good wide-angle lens are not cheap though. I have the cheap $80 Vitacon 0.4x one but it introduces bad distortion and chromatic aberrations.

The companion for this B-28 is the famous B-300 1.7x TC ($280)......that's why the high price.

Anyway, Olympus recommend using the B-28 and B-300 for best results.

For IR filter, I'm no expert...so can anyone else help Galaa?????

U can try Hoya R72 for taking IR pics.

But u have to ask them to order for u :D

It's a small shop, but they are quite nice to have ordered for me:D

No. Where is it?

And since we're at the topic of lens, I might as well ask more question. I think these benefit newbies like me as we don hv experience with lens.

Whats the diff between a good and lousy UV lens? Im using a cheap Hoya UV lens. Should I change?
