A newbie OM lens to Nex question

Hi all,

I've just gone and got my grubby mitts on a Nex-5n. (i bought it from a genuine three dimensional shop, not a virtual one; it was cheaper than web prices. )

Any hoo, my old dad has given me his old Olympus om4 and three lenses (plus various filters and bits) to sell on, so he can get a compact travel zoom.

The three lens are;
Zuiko 1:3.5 28mm Auto w
Zuiko 1:3.5 50mm Auto Macro and finally
Zuiko 1:4 75-150mm Auto zoom

I took them to a local camera shop and had them checked out. Turns out they are fungus, blemish and scratch etc free. The shop offered me 90 pounds for the lot.

So, lets get down to the nitty griity. (thank goodness, i hear you sigh.)

Are any of these lenses decent and would they make for a good match with my Nex-5n?

Also, can any of you good folk recommend to me an OM to E-mount adaptor, that i can purchase in the UK?

If they are any good, i may just do a straight swap with my old pop for the whole lot in exchange for my Canon sx220.

Cheers from Mark.

Sony Alpha NEX-5N
