Using old OM lenses
Aug 15, 2012

Hi,

You may have seen this question before on the mft forum but thought I would ask here also as I have an E500

My father had an OM1 and accessories sitting in a cupboard for ages and he has since given it to me to see if I can use or ebay it. It has a few lenses with it and from reading the forum I remember a lot of talk about using the older lenses with an adapter and wondered if any of you could give me some advise on which of these (if any) could be used and what I need to do to use them. I currently have an E500 and an EP2 and the lenses are as follows,

Zuiko 50mm f1.8
Zuiko 24mm f2.8
Tamron 70-210 (possibly scratched on front, not sure)

What should I look out for and should I pay full whack for an olympus adapter or would any cheapo work ok?

Any hints and tips would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Mike
