The lens is not designed to be removed and the camera will not function if you do manage to do so as it will report a lens error. To avoid this will involve bypassing various microswitches, simulating missing inputs and making other custom modifications to your camera. It's not impossible but you'll be on your own with the modifications, adapting and inventing as you go.

Ideally you either need a suitable SLR with an adaptor, or a camera which will accept an adaptor onto the front filter fitting (not all compacts and bridge cameras have them though).

You'd best contact Olympus directly for suggestions: they're a major microscope manufacturer and have always had the best solutions for using their cameras with microscopes. They have in the past produced a surprising number of microscope adapters for their models and have often produced special versions of their cameras designed solely for use with microscopes, endoscopes and similar non-standard applications.

Is it posseble to use a vivitar lens of analog olympus camera on a digital canon camera


It depends on the lens. If the lens has a fixed mount for an Olympus, then no, it will only fit on Olympus cameras. If it has a removable T-mount, then yes, with an appropriate T-mount for Canon or most any other brand.

A typical wide / tel lens kit listed on eBay. Note that either / both lenses require you to screw an adaptor tube around the existing lens, so that the lens extender mechanism can continue to function properly. (This kit includes it - some do not).

Pentax ES2; do bayonet lens fit digital Pentax SLR?


Any Pentax K-mount lens will fit any Pentax DSLR. The DSLR will fire the shutter.  There is a menu setting (RTFM) which allows the use of older lenses, but you will lose some of the automation (again RTFM). Remember to allow that the effective focal length when using a "film" lens on a DSLR body goes up by 50%.
A standard 50mm lens becomes a 75mm equivalent, but stays a large aperture.

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.

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!

No. Your camera is not compatible with a microscope, but Olympus does manufacture a DP-10 microscope digital camera system designed specifically for medical and industrial use. For more information about this, please contact the Olympus Precision Instrument Division at 800-446-5967.
