Re: e-330 choice of lenses
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.

The first answer is from some one who obviously is not familiar with Olympus (and many other brands of DSLRs) or he would know that many lenses do not have manual focus scales to use. Olympus Standard Grade lenses do not include a focusing distance scale.
The more important issues for you are determining - 1) Are you trying to use "Live View" to focus? If so you are using a less sensitive auto focus mode. One of the benefits of using a DSLR is that it can use more sensitive auto-focus systems than Point
You are able to use your old OM lenses with a new Olympus digital SLR camera. You will need to purchase an MF-OM 1 lens adapter to be able to connect these lenses to the digital SLR camera. Also when using these lenses you will only be able to use the camera in manual focus mode as these lenses are not capable to shhot with an auto focus mode.
You can use the lens from your old OM camera on the EVOLT E-410. You would need to purchase an MF-OM-1 adapter to make those lenses fit the new digital SLR camera. Also when using those lenses the camera would need to be used in Manual mode as there is no auto focus capability when using the old OM lenses.
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.
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.
