Just got an E-3, no more money for a new AF lens, I also prefer manual focusing. Please help and thank you for the information.

Unless you only want to use them wide open, you better use Nikkors with an aperture ring. Otherwise, as long as you've got the adaptor ring to mount either Nikon F or Leica R lenses (or, really, anthing else with the right adaptor), you should be able to use just about any of them....other thansomething that would require the mirror being locked up.

Thank you Greg,

I am looking for a Leica R lens adapter for E-3 (got the Nikon F adapter). searching on internet and find few of them. But, I have no idea which one I shall buy.

Hi,

I've personally bought an OM to 4/3 Olympusadapter and use it on my E-510. The supplier was Cirrus Adapter -found on EBay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/NIKON-F-lens-ada...742.m153.l1262

Build quality is very good and the service was fine, albeit a little slow since it was shipped from China.

Others, on this forum have used this supplier with success:

The benefit of the JinFance adapter is that it is supplied with an auto foucs confirm chip.
