A few years ago I used an Nikon ES-1 with an E-500 and 35mm to scan about 10000 slides and didn't encounter any problem even focusing.

With the kit lens you need a step up ring 40.5mm to 52mm so that it can be twist on the ES-1.

but I don't think you will get sharp corners if you use a kit zoom for this ...

Ok, the kit zoom may not be as good as a dedicated prime macro lens, but I think it's possible to get acceptable results with the kit lens.

Over lunchtime, my ES-1 slide copying adapter came in.   It threads onto the 12-50 Olympus kit lens, and in macro mode, it works fine.   This might be easier to use than my homemade rig.

This was taken with my gx1, but I don't think the camera matters too much for this application.
