Can anyone confirm if this is what I am after........

.....I have a couple of OM10's with the 50mm 1.8 lenses and as they sell for NOWT I thought about using the lenses.
I assume they would be a 100mm on the E510/500 and also everything be manual.
Just thought it would be fun to use them if this is the correct adapter as I don't want to lash out all that money on the wrong thing.
Out of interest I also have a Miranda 70-210 4.5/5.6
and a Sigma 28mm 2.8

Thanks

Then compare this price to the Olympus one: Olympus MF-1 OM-Adpator for 4/3 Fit (http://www.warehouseexpress.com/buy-olympus-mf-1-om-adaptor-for-4-3-fit/p1011838) :eek:

Then you can also use an AF confirm version with the Dandelion chip.

It works quite well, especially when it is hard to see stopped down on an E520. I have one & like it, but there is a programming routine too to have the correct info stored into the EXIF data if you want to use it or ignore it.

As said that's the wrong adapter, but you are correct about the effect of focal length. I can reccomend that ghastly lMiranda tele for Macro use - ge yourself a cheap set of macro extension rings and use them with this lens, you'll be suprised how nice a combination they make.

I use my 50mm f1.8 attached to a Tamron 2x converter which also reduces the minimum focus, makes another great macro lens.

If you get the following extension tube set
http://cgi.ebay.com/Macro-Extension-Tube-Ring-Olympus-4-3-Mount-D-SLR-/230454466166?pt=Lens_Accessories&hash=item35a8281676
& reversing 55mm (for filter thread of OM 50mm f1.8 lens) 4/3
http://cgi.ebay.com/55mm-Macro-Reverse-Adapter-Ring-Olympus-4-3-E510-E420-/280540470471?pt=Lens_Accessories&hash=item415183dcc7 (I actually got the 58mm version with a step down ring)

as well as the OM to 4/3 adapter (with or without AF confirm for when using lens normally) you are able to achieve optimum macro use from your lens with a constant working distance of approximately 2". Focus is done by moving camera only & with the OM adapter on the mount end of the lens, you are able to adjust the aperture.

So at the camera, first mount extension tubes, then reversing adapter, then screw on lens with filter thread & finally OM to 4/3 adapter for aperture control.

If you also get a 28mm lens f2.8, in that combination, you can achieve this sort of macro of a tiny spider on Winter Grass with a very fine seed head.
