Is there a micro 4/3 to 4/3 adapter plus a E-1 flash question

Re: You're asking the impossible for both questions...

You can use wireless flash triggers with the E-1. It's shooting all manual, but that's cool with me. I don't like the line of sight that you have to have with the built in wireless. It's a pain and in my experience is too limiting.  I have Cactus 5 triggers that I really like. They are a class act for the money.

Yeah, sorry about the lenses. You can use 4/3rds lenses on micro, but not the other way around. I'd say pick up some legacy glass for your E-1 and keep it as a fun alternative. I have a few gems that I use on my DSLR and mirrorless. The cheapest is the Tamron 35-80mm f2.8-3.8. What a great lens. I also really like my Tamron SP 90mm f2.5 macro which is the same size and quality feel of the 35-80mm. They are both adapall 2, so it's handy to share adapters. I also have a Tamron SP 300mm f2.8 + 1.4x + 2.0x. It's a nice set. Buying lenses like these are inexpensive and you can use on both formats. I plan on keeping all of these if I ever move to mirrorless as my primary system.

What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?
