Probably not much. But I know of a site (as I am sure you all do) called DIY Photography (net) which supposedly provides very effective third party hacks for digital cameras. At present they seem to work mainly with Canon and Nikon but there have been some "disgruntled requests" from Olympus and Fujifim owners.

And would you risk it? I'm out as Duncan Bannatyne might say.

Frankly, I don't know. I have to confess that I am tempted. During my brief ownership of the Samyang Fisheye lens, I got a lot of pleasure using the aperture ring but I did not see much use for the lens and so sold it on (here).

It may not be the same thing but I used the Caribbean based (owned by Italians, I think) "Any DVD" software for over 10 years on 3 different Windows systems without any problems on my desktop before allowing the subscription to lapse. They even provided regular free updates several times a year.

This DIY Photography site appears well set-up but I know appearances can be deceptive. I guess I am going to do some more asking around before making a decision.
