I have bundles of great OM Zuiko glass left over from the film era and used it with my E-PM1.

They all produce fantastic results - but focusing is a bit awkward on the PM1.

I just bought a E-PL5 which is better for manual focusing but not perfect.

The most useful OM lenses are my 50mm f1.4, giving me effective 100mm f1.4 and another 50, the 3.5 macro.

ALSO, make sure you have the latest firmware for you camera. Last night I installed a new FW for my PL5 that has a fix for exposure issues with non-4/3 lenses.

Oh yes, the distance scales on the OM lenses will be incorrect and like stated above, infinity is not where you think it is!
