Olympus om 30 manual

The OM-30 has focusing system limitations. Most of the time, you can use the LED in the viewfinder to help you focus an image. If the lens you attach has a maximum aperture of F4 or smaller, (F5.6, etc) you set this switch to F4, then focus the lens manually using the prism gridlines visible in the viewfinder.

In short, just set the F4/F2 switch to whichever is the closest to the maximum aperture of the lens you are using. With an F1.8 lens, for example, you would use the F2 setting. For a lens with a maximum aperture of F3.5, you would use the F4 switch setting.

Usually those lenses have retaining rings that unscrew from the barrel of the lens. My guess (not having seen the exact lens) is it's the same with your lens.
I would suggest you get a set of micro straight edge screwdrivers and a rubber cap and lid remover, like those sheets of rubber you use to get a better grip. A rubber glove may do the job if you don't have one, but make sure to wash any powder off the glove before you start work.
Start by taking off the first retainer, which is that thing with the printed letters and numbers on it. If you can't get enough friction with the rubber on it, then use the micro screwdriver. The way to use the screwdriver is to stick the tip onto any sort of dimple on the retainer, such as the lettering. It will damage the printing, but on a cheap lens it won't matter much. There may be other retainers you encounter as well that have a notch in one side that you can slip the screwdriver into and use that to turn the ring.

Have olympus om g.zuiko auto-s1:1.4 f=50mm with bug within the lense. Attempting to disassemble. Need diagram on disassembling parts step by step. Need help.

I went on the net to try and find a manual, to no avail. My suggestion would be for you to contact Olympus support, and see if they can supply one. Here is their site:
If you scroll down the page a bit, you will find a section to contact Olympus. Hopefully, they can supply one, otherwise you will have to see if a local camera repair shop can help you.
Wish I had more, but hope this helps.

Zuiko 70-300mm lens focusing problem

Maybe its something you're not doing, LOL.
Look on the side of the lens. Most of the 70-300 macros have a slide switch. My Tamron, for instance, needs to be zoomed out to 300, then slide the switch to Macro and its ok. Look for the slide switch. You might also notice lines of a different color to denote Macro.
Some days it too tough to be smarter than the lens,

Zuiko 70-300mm

I spoke to our local J&A Camera shop who gave me a short tuition on the lens.
Most of this I was aware of.
Thank you to J&A and yourselves.
