I don't know how to remove the lens for fujifilm s3200


You don't.

It may look superficially like an interchangeable lens camera, but it's not. The lens is permanently fixed to the camera.

Konica lens converter to Olympus


They're easy to adapt to fit on a 4/3 mount body, but the lens will be totally manual and will not automatically communicate information about which lens aperture is in use to your camera. You will also not have the ability to automatically stop down the aperture when shooting, so you'll need to focus with the aperture ring set to the widest setting (allows in most light to make focussing easier) and then turn the aperture ring down to the correct setting for actual exposure.

In all, it's a bit of a chore, but does allow you to use your lens. Optical quality will not seem as good as you remember, contrast will be lower (unless you mask the rear of the lens to suit the smaller 4/3 sensor) and the lens will have the same angle of view as a long telephoto zoom in the 160-400mm range, so almost all shots will have camera shake unless you use the image stabilisation and/or a tripod. All of that may sound off-putting, but with care and awareness of the limitations of what you propose you'll still be able to achieve very good results. I use a commercially available adapter to use many of my old OM mount lenses on my E-510 with all the same caveats and have been pleased with the results.

If you Google "Konica to 4/3" you'll find further details, but to get you started click here for a link to someone who can supply ready made adapters (I have no personal experience of the supplier), but if you or anyone you know has basic workshop skills you can make them yourself using details available from the search term I suggested.

I hope that my reply has helped you to decide what to do next and would appreciate it if you would take a moment to rate my answer..

How to use a manual zoom lens with Evolt 510


By manual zoom lens I am assuming you mean a film camera lens. If it is one of our OM 1 or 2 lenses they can be used on our Olympus digital SLR camera but you will need to purchase an MF-OM1 converter to be able to adapt those lenses to fit on our digital SLR camera. Then you will only be able to shoot using those lens in manual focus mode. Auto focus mode will not be available.

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!
