using older lense's

Hi Guys is there a definitive guide as to which of the older Olympus lens's we can use on the new E510 ? I know minolta users have a section on steves which lists all the minolta lens's which will fit the newer sony's and gives a write up on each one ? I would like to know which of the older Olympus lens's fit the newer system and how they perform ? whether they will use any of the functionality of the new system or are totally manual without even showing f numbers or anything
thanks

Re: using older lense's

You can use the Olympus OM series of lenses with the OM adapter. Here is a link which might be useful: Compatibilities for the OM Adapter
