Wanted: OM Lens to 4/3 adapter

Hi all

Dug out my OM-10 recently (with manual adapter) as I was looking to see which 50mm lens I had - and it's the f1.8 model. So, I guess I'd like to try this out on my E-3 and am looking for an OM to 4/3 adapter so I can mount this lens on my E-3.

Anyone make any suggestions as to a reliable source where I could get one, or perhaps if you have one yourself that you are wanting to sell on.

Cheers...

Re: Wanted: OM Lens to 4/3 adapter

There are all kinds on eBay both with or without the Dandelion AF confirmation chip, if you go the eBay route watch the shipping charges as some of them are a little crazy, adapter they are selling cheep but cost more for shipping. I got mine from Here without the chip it seems to be well made and infinity focus is not a problem (Is a know problem with some of the adapters). I didn't go with the dandelion chip as I didn't really think it was required.
