Yes; there are basically two distinctive types of FD lenses. Chrome ring or black ring.

Operation with an FD lens which lacks a chrome Breech-lock mount ring:
Removal from Lens
1. Turn the cap counterclockwise until it stops.
2. Pull the cap out.

Re-attachment 1. Align the arrow on the cap with the red dot at the rear of the lens. 2. In that position, apply slight pressure to the cap and turn it clockwise until it is tight. Note: The rear dust cap for this type of lens has serrated edges. Do not mount a rear dust cap which lacks the serrated edges.

Operation with an FD lens which has a chrome Breech-lock mount ring or with an FL lens:
Removal from Lens 1. Turn the lens' mount ring clockwise until it stops. 2. Pull the cap out. Note: Once the rear cap is removed, the Breech-lock mount ring is locked so that it cannot be turned. (The diaphragm blades are also locked and will not move even if the aperture ring is rotated. )

Re-attachment 1. Make sure the mount ring is locked so that it cannot be turned. 2. Align the arrow on the cap with the red dot on the lens' mount ring. 3. In that position, push lightly down on the cap and turn the mount ring counterclockwise until it is tight.

NOTE: Lens Hood When shooting into bright light, light rays entering the lens may form defects on the image called ghost and flare. Attaching a hood onto the lens helps to prevent this. Bayonetmount hoods are available as optional accessories for most Canon lenses.

Please use only that hood which is specified for the lens concerned. This type of hood fits into the bayonet mount at the front of the lens where it is fixed by turning until it is tight. Some hoods for wide-angle lenses require proper positioning before mounting. Align the red dot on this type of hood with the notch in the bayonet mount at the front of the lens. Then lightly push the hood into the mount and turn it until it is tight. For replacement parts contact here for or or try with your local photo-store.

Hope this helps.

Camera compatability

Has the Lumix got a thread on the front of the lens where the lens cap fits. if so see if there is a size written inside the lens cap. This will tell you what size threaded adaptor will be required on the front of the lens to fit the ring light to. be warned as this may cut the corners off your photos then the lens is in wide focus mode. Some lenses may not allow adaptor to be fitted to them as the lens element moves in and out and may hit the ring light and cause damage to your camers. Study the camera first.

Wide angle cap vs wide angle lens

The cap is a plastic disk, usually black or silver, that snaps on at the end of the lens to keep the lens clean. Some lenses have two caps, one for each end when not attached to the camera.
Some cameras don't use a "loose" cap; those cameras generally retract the lens into the camera body and "close" a door in front of the lens.
Many, if not most, camera users do not use a cap (my guess).

The wide angle lens is generally an "optional" lens that can be used for group or scenery pictures when you want to shoot a "wide" picture. A "normal" lens is generally around 50mm (plus / minus 5mm). A wide lens is anywhere from 17mm to 24mm (or so).

I recommend obtaining a wide lens... with a cap.

Hope this helps!

Lens adapter needed

Get yourself a step ring, 52mm for you S8000FD, this has a thread on the end and allows filter attachments. I have an S8000FD and have since bought a step up ring, UV filter and Polariser, plus another lens cap which fits on to the end via a pinch mechanism rather than clamping like the one provided by Fuji.

Attachment for filter and hood

If you go to the camera store that sells quantaray then they will be able to order you one if they do not have it in stock.
or you can find one on a online auction site.
you need a step down ring. I believe the size of your lens is 58 mm but you could go to any camera store and ask them to verify that. but it should also be stamped on the front of the lens written in white.

if you find 58 mm anywhere on it then I am right. And that means you need a 72 to 58 mm stepping ring.

hope that helps,

Lost lens cap

I would sugest using an adaptor ring. You can reduce the size of your lens opening down a common size lens cap that will fit your camera. If you can't go this route then give me the make and model number and I will see what I can do for you. LJ

Attaching non-Olympus lenses

The E-500 body has a "bayonet" twist & click attachment for the lens. There is no way that a simple screw threaded lens can attach to the camera directly. The lens that you have are designed to screw into the front of the original Olympus lens. I have seen some of these adverts on auction sites and they are worded something like "The wide angle / Tele lenses are simply mounted in the front of the Olympus EVOLT E-500 / E-330 / E-300 standard ZUIKO Digital EZ 14-45mm lens, or any other lens with 58mm filter thread." Which maybe isn't clear enough. So the bottom line is that you need an Olympus lens to use the other lenses you have bought. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
