Just wondering if there is any use (in the dSLR world) for my old Olympus OM-10 lenses ?
In my readings on Steve's site, it appears that dSLR's use lenses specific to digital cameras. Is this entirely true? Should I consider selling these old lenses on ebay and use the money toward digital equipment?

Welcome to the forums Bruce.

There may be a way to use them with some type of adapter (I remember seeing some Olympus E-1 owners discussing using them some time back).

So, I've moved this thread down to our Olympus E Series SLR Forum whereOlympus owners may be able to give you more informed responses.

Yes, Olympus does make an adapter to allow 35mm Zuiko OM lens to be used on its four-thirds dSLRs: i.e. the E-1, E-300, and E-500. It is the "MA-1" adaptor, and owners of these cameras can e-mail Olympusto order for their camera. The OM lens can only be used as manual focus, etc.

There are some excellent Zuiko OM lens that can be bought at very reasonable prices. If you already own several lens, you should look closely at the new E-500.
