I am trying to find a cheaper wide angle lens

For an Olympus Evolt 500 series camera? I am buying this for my husband who is a novice and I hate to spend 600. on an Olympus wide angle lense. Can you suggest one that may fit this camera that is cheaper?

Hello till1118, I would suggest picking up a copy of Shutterbug magazine. This lists new and used lenses for many styles of cameras and you might be able to find a mail-order bargain. A website I use many times for photo purchases is www.KEH.com or www.eBay.com. You'll find other lenses out there from secondary manufacturers for half the price. Good luck.

My xd card will not stay in on my olympus e500 digital camera. It just pops back out.


I have exactly the same problem with my Evolt E-500. Very annoying and I've tried everything, and there's nothing in the manuals to advise about it.

My Olympus EVOLT E-500 has been showing a pink tint when photographing browns. Can this be fixed by changing a setting?


Try a manual white balance setting using a white piece of paper as your target in the light you will be using.

What are the most common problems with digital cameras?


Best place to buy a lens for that camera in on EBAY....cameras, even digitals, are made to take a drop, but, sometimes it can hurt the camera, over times it shouldn't...buy a new lens, and give it a try.

E-330 choice of lenses


Hi Fredher,

Your wife has many lens choices for her camera.
Her camera is called the Four Third Camera.
You can use lenses made by Leica, Olympus, Panasonic and Sigma.
Also, can use older OM lenses for the Four Third, but you will need an adapter for it. Adapter can be purchased from Olympus.

Leica, Olympus and Panasonic make Four Third Cameras and lenses.

Sigma makes lenses for Four Third, too. .
You just have to tell them that you have a Four Third camera.

Try to sell that 40-150 lenses. Then buy the 50-200/2.8-3.5 SWD. If you got the money, buy the 90-250/2.8 from Olympus.
This will give you the reach for sports without getting run over.

50-200 is equal to 100-400mm
90-250 is equal to 180-500mm.

Just to get a 500mm/F2.8 on a 35mm camera will hit you over $12,000.00 USD.

If cost is a factor, then buy the Sigma APO 70-200/2.8 II EX DG Marco HSM.

70-200 = 140 to 400mm

To get a 400/2.8 will cost you $9,000.00 on a 35mm camera.

All lenses above all made for the working pros.

Hope they are helpful.

Attaching non-Olympus lenses


The E-500 body has a "bayonet" twist & click attachment for the lens. There is no way that a simple screw threaded lens can attach to the camera directly. The lens that you have are designed to screw into the front of the original Olympus lens. I have seen some of these adverts on auction sites and they are worded something like "The wide angle / Tele lenses are simply mounted in the front of the Olympus EVOLT E-500 / E-330 / E-300 standard ZUIKO Digital EZ 14-45mm lens, or any other lens with 58mm filter thread." Which maybe isn't clear enough. So the bottom line is that you need an Olympus lens to use the other lenses you have bought. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
