Hi Tullio:Glad to hear the Sigma and Pentax work well. Did you purchase your adapter on e-bay, and do you have a recommendation for the best source?

Have you tried any on theOlympuslegacy OM lens? Olympushas now enabled ISon the E-510 when using the old OM lens.

Steve, I got my adapter on eBay from Fotodiox. I've actually bought filters and step rings from them and find the quality of their products and their service to be very good, so I highly recommend them. I have an Oly 50mm f1.8 but I haven't bought the OM-4/3 adapter. Since I already have the Pentax 50mmf1.7, I figured it would not be worth to spend the money on theadapter just for one lens. The Sigma is still my favorite, though.With my K100, it was auto everything and I loved it.

Hi everyone:

Thanks for your comments, but no one correctly guessed which lens was used to take the flower. It was kind of a trick question, as it was not taken with one of the new lens. It was an oldlegacy OlympusOMZuiko lens. (I have quite a collection acquired when using my OM2 film camera.)

Hi Gwillys: I like those pictures; nice composition and colors, makes for excellent photos. That's an interesting combo using the Zeiss lens with an E-1. But the proof is in the pudding, and the results speak for themselves.
