How will an Olympus Zuiko 50mm auto-s f/1.8 lens work on my E-510 ?

Will it be full manual ? AF will be manual but what about other controls ?

Hi,

The lens you mention will work quite well on the E-510 provided you use an adapter to allow you to mount the legacy lens to a four/thirds camera.

The adapter can be purchased on EBay for around 25dollarsUS. The lens will have to be focused manually and will not work in Auto or Program mode.

For a complete explanation take a look at this article when you have a chance:

Hi,

Your post prompted me to pull outmy OM50mm F1.8 lens. Hadn't used it for some time now. Took a few pics. Here's one attached:
