For macro imaging, UCL-330(*2), high power UCL-165M67(*2) and ultra powerful UCL-100M67close-up lenses are compatible to get closer to a subject.
For wide imaging, UWL-H100 28M67 Type2 is compatible and its super wide option Dome Lens Unit II for UWL-H100 further increases view angle for ultra wide imaging.
The UFL-M150 ZM80 underwater micro fish-eye lens is also usable to capture underwater scenery through eyes of small fish to depict distinctively only with this lens. (*3)

The MRS Magnet Ring G14-42 II Set is a set of MRS Magnet Ring and MRS Magnet Ring G14-42 II Adapter to attach on the Panasonic LUMIX G VARIO 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 II ASPH./MEGA O.I.S. zoom lens for zoom operation.
Zooming operation is controlled by INON patented MRS (Magnetic Rotary System) Port using magnetic attraction to turn lens barrel with light torque as like controlling a lens on land.
The MRS Magnet Ring is also usable for other MRS Magnet Ring Adapters to use for other lenses only with optional MRS Magnet Ring Adapter.
