Other than the Oly fisheye there's a definite lack of system WA primes. (I don't know if perhaps Sigma made one?) How about an 11-22, whicih should be a good resolution match for the e-1? It's a handy walkaround lens and quite versatile. Only downside is it's not small.

I know the 11-22 lens, I had it some years ago.

Retrofocus legacy SLR WA primes are a poor match for smaller format cameras, as most end up effectively being slow, soft, standard or even short tele lenses when used on 4/3 cameras.

As I have said before, I sold my E-5 and all the lenses, except for the 50mm macro. I also kept the old E-1. I am now building a new set around m4/3.

However, I would like one more lens for my E-1. I had both the 25mm 2.8 and the 9-18 zoom. Sold them both. I guess I could have kept the letter.
My question is: can I get an old wide angle prime and use it on my E-1?
