  • wanted 50mm macro and 50mm prime for e410

    Hi Does anyone have the above lenses they are looking to get rid of. I am new to photography (hence the 410) and have been using this for a short time to get used to a dslr (my first).

    I would like to add the above lenses to my collection.

    Any help would be appreciated also any equipment will be considered

    Which lenses exactly are you looking for? ZD (digital) or legacy OM (manual operation and need an adaptor. Vast difference in price.

      Hi

      I know this sounds daft but dont know the difference between OM and ZD. I have an E-410 if that helps. If possible could you tell me the difference please

        Well if you want your auto focus to work you need ZD ( zuiko digital ) lenses! Or you can fit old OM lenses to your camera via an adapter, but although you can get these lenses to confirm focus, you still need to focus totally manually!

          Thanks

          So both type lenses will work with my camera, its only the ZD that use autofocus

          Thanks

                I assume you have the two kit lenses, 14-42 and 40-150

                The 14-42 does get quite close anyway. However you can buy an achromat 58mm screw on close up lens that would fit it. There is no loss of light using this method, its quite cheap, the autofocus would still work. However there would be a very slight loss in image sharpness. Its probably the simplest way to start. There was a thread on here about close up lenses - have a search :-)
