I cannot focus one of the lenses (14-45mm) for my Olympus E500 camera, the other lens focuses fine so the problem is not with the camera.

There is nothing you can do to fix this, the lens must be sent to an Olympus service centre for repair.

Repairs are normally done on a fixed-fee basis unless the lens is still under the manufacturer's warranty, so if you visit the Olympus website for your country you can check out the fee and determine whether you're better off buying a good used lens (still a gamble, but typically £45-£60) or a brand new one. Given that you have the kit 14-45mm you might decide that the repair costs are better invested towards the far better but far more expensive 14-54mm which is a vastly better lens in terms of optical and build quality, but most casual users won't notice any difference except for the extra weight.

How auto focus


Most camera's, and the Olympus to work the same with auto focus. You place the AF target o the place you want to focus on. (the part that should be in focus in your picture) then press the shutter release button half and wait tip the AF conformation mark lighter up on the view finder. (the little round in on the bottom left) Then frame the picture as you want it shot and press the button complete.
I'm not sure your lens has a AF / MF switch, but that should be on AF all the time.
When you use non AF lenses, your cmarea can't focus automatically.
It should work fine with the kit lens. (lens that was originally delivered with the body)

Which size of adapter to use to fit it to Nikon D300?


Nikon bodies are thicker than Olympus bodies, thus while Nikon lenses can be made to focus to infinity when mounted onto an Olympus body, an Olympus lens will not focus to infinity were it mounted onto a Nikon body. Thus, no one makes an adapter to fit an Olympus lens onto a Nikon body.

Ol filme camera lenes fit mycanon ef-s digital eos 1000D


Hello,

are your old film lenses FD or EF mounts ?
(Is the old film camera a Canon ?)

EF will fit EFS fine. My expeariance is with the EOS 3000 EF film camera (2002 -etc) and these work fine.

If you have Canon FD, there are some lens converters out there however I have not seen any yet which electrically connect and there is no AF. All Manual focus.

I have used Olympus OM mount adaptors with manual focus to mount older/different mount lenses with some success (As an example).

Best idea is to search ebay for your mount converters.

Olympus om-2 cvamera lenses


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.

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.

I'll bet that the problem lens is the 14-45 lens. I will also suggest that the lens received a knock or drop. This has caused the focus link to jump out of position. The repair is not difficult but you do need to be familiar with micro circuits. (There is a board to remove) I believe that Olympus may cover this if the lens is under a year old.
