YOUR CAMERA NEEDS A WET LENS - LIMITED SUPPLY

The Backscatter M52 wide angle wet lens was designed with the Olympus TG series 1 through 6 of cameras in mind. With a 120 degree angle of coverage, sharp corners, and no vignetting at 24mm this lens is the perfect combination for the first time wide angle shooter with a TG camera.


The Backscatter M52 Wide Angle Air Lens is a wet-mount wide angle conversion lens designed to work best with Olympus TG series cameras.
