for those interested in using the older OM lenses on the E1 or E300 using the adapter, i have done a test against the ED 50-200mm, results are surprising, the old lenses are cheap to buy and produce great image quality.

What sort of adapter is that and where do you get one?

The adapter can be purchased from Olympus, but I believe they were giving them free to new purchasers of the E-1 or E-300 (you had to apply and give the serial number of your camera). Don't quote me on that, but I've heard such rumors on several sites.

From our E-1 review pg 2:


Thanks to http://www.zuiko.com for the following information:

MOUNT YOUR OM LENSES ON THE E-1???

On the NEW PRODUCT LIST at the Olympus America website (sorry, this list only viewable by authorized Dealers), there is product #260209, "OM Adapter MA-1" which is listed as "For use with E-System digital cameras. OM to 4/3 adapter."
