Sorry, the type of Pen F you bought is for use in the medical field.
Cone attaches to an endoscope (google it). Regular lens could be
attached (remove cone first) but the big problem is the focus screen.
Screen is clear, made for endoscope only, camera cannot be converted to 
a regular focus screen.
