Hello. I have a DMC-GH4 Lumix Camera. My friend purchased a 13E Pro 2.2 telephoto lens.... It simply will NOT attach to camera. What adaptor would I require?

Technician's Assistant: How old is your Lumix?

Less than 2 years.. 1.5 maybe

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Lumix?

So far, I thought it would simply affix to the camera. I have gotten no where

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

No, I dont think so

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your lens mounting question.
What brand is the 13E Pro 2.2 telephoto lens, please?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
BE PRO pro series 0.43X AF wide angle lens 58 mm
Camera and Video Technician: Russell H., Service Tech replied 6 months ago

The lens thread size is 58 mm. And since it is a single lens, it is most likely supposed to be mounted upon another lens assembly, to reduce focal length or similar adapter for macro photography at very close distances. So it doesn't mount on the camera, I don't think... ? the information available on this is rather poor, but after examining a lot of the info and putting it together, that's my conclusion. If it doesn't mount onto your camera's lens mount, do not attempt to mount it, nor force it to... damage can result that would be expensive to get repaired.

If there's any evidence that I'm wrong, please let me know.
