someone was telling me they heard about lens mount adapters for the OLY cameras....so you can mount, say a Nkon lens on the E300? I'd be surprised...nicely so, but surprised....since I've got lots of Nikon gear.

It's TRUE!!!

Nikon F, Pentax Screw & K, Yashica, Contax RTS, Leica R, Minolta MD, Exakta, and of course Olympus OM.

These adapters have no electronics or optics so everything is manual. You also have to use Aperture priority and spot metering to use these. They cost $175 each. Check out the following page:

My only gripe is that @ $175, they are wayyy over priced.

Yes, the price is ridiculous. Of course, that always encourages competition which inevitably brings the price down. I can wait.
