Re: E500 to E30 upgrade

Richard probably has a an older 14-45 or 17.5-45. In any case, both of these will work on the E-30. His tele kit lens may indeed be the older 14-150 f/3.5-4.5, and this is actually a pretty good lens, although the newer 14-150 is much smaller and lighter. None of the older lenses I have mentioned here will work in full live view autofocus mode with the E-30, but they will work in hybrid live view mode, which is pretty close - you just need to double check that focus is good before shooting.
