Hello
so i was looking at lenses on ebay and i purchased a sigma zoom 1:4 5.6f 55-200mm "mc for olympus om " (thought it would be ok to learn with) but now i'm thinking i am prob going to fit a lens mount adapter
bought it as i was only 17 with 2mins 2 go not thinking about the "om"
can anyone confirm if i am right
thanks paul

Sounds like you'll need an adapter. OM prime lenses go well with FT but I'm not so sure about zooms.

Yes, you will need an OM/Four thirds adaptor but you can get them for around 10. OM zooms work fine. Most of my photography is done with legacy lenses.

In my OM using decades I tried Olympus, Vivitar and Sigma zooms but never found any worth keeping.
