First digital SLR - existing lenses?
Dec 19, 2006

For many years I have used an ancient Olympus OM1 for which I own a 28, 50 and 100 mm prime lenses and a 65-200mm zoom.

I now feel that it is time to move into the digital age! My question is this. I gather that I can purchase an adaptor (for about $150) which will enable me to use my existing lenses (although I know that I will need at least one new short focal length zoom lens because of the smaller sensor area) on any 4/3 DSLR.

Should this influence my choice or is it better to ignore existing lenses and start with a blank sheet of paper (and a limited budget)?
