There is still at least 2 or 3 OM to 4/3 AF confirm adapters for sale on ebay. Here is two from a quick search

It seems that there is a lot of OM to micro 4/3 which considering the number of micro 4/3 cameras makes sense.

I only bought 1 AF adapter from China. After that I bought 3 more plain manual adapters from Fotodiox. They are very well made and fit well. But while the OVF of the E-3 is large enough to focus well, I can see why the AF confirm would be important on a camera with a smaller viewfinder like the E-1. I leave the adapters on the manual lens so I don't have to swith the adapters when I change lens.

I look into that, thanks. Having AF confirm makes a big difference on the E-1 for everything but macro work.

Hey Greg... I remember the post but not most of those pics and that 350 F2.8 is a beast!

Right now I'm not too sure of the 200mm.. Thinking for the money it would be pretty good value and from Johns review at boifos it was as good or better than the 50-200Zd at 200 on the E1 so I need to do some more research.
