Default Adapters for lenses, Advantages and disadvantages

I'm a rookie, and looking at adding lenses to the kit, Current camera is an Olympus E620 with twin lens kit,any thoughts would be helpful. I'm looking at Telephoto lenses as apart from general photos I like sport photography particularly surfing.

Hi,

Probably the best Olympus zoom lens for action photography, including surfing, would be the 50-200mm Lens. Either the ED (version 1) or the SWD, which is the newer version.

I don't do surfing photography. But if you run a search in this forum, you'll find some posts done by members who do.

Also, here's a link to a discussion with photos found on another forum site:

Did you mean using legacy (manual focusing) film lenses like Olympus OM, Nikon F, Pentax K, etc. instead of buying FourThirds lenses?

There's lots of information on Mr. Wrotniak's site:

However there's lots of choice in autofocusing dedicated FourThirds lenses that don't require an adapter:

And if you've never heard of Mr. Wrotniak's site there's TONS of Olympus/FourThirds information there, great for both new and seasoned users:
