Lens Compatibility - Digital / Film

Currently have Olympus OM1 & OM2 file cameras and many (49mm) Zuiko lenses. Any chance of being able to use them with the digital Olympus cameras, esp. Olympus PRO?

Hey savmoney,
Your current OM lenses are not directly compatible with the current four thirds mount used on Olympus DSLR's, but there is an OM four thirds adapter which should allow you to mount your older lenses to a new Olympus DSLR. You should have limited functionality while using the adapter, but according to the manufacturer aperture priority should work and full manual. I have included a link to a chart that shows which OM lenses are supported by this adapter. I hope this helps!

Will the Zuiko 70 - 300mm f/4-5.6 ED lense fit my E520 body?


Yes, no problem at all. The lens is a Four-Thirds mount and that's what your camera is designed to accept.

Please take a moment to rate my reply and feel free to add a comment if there's anything in my answer which has left you with any further questions.

Cant wind up film!?


You haven't stated whether you activated the rewind knob before trying to rewind the film. Unless you do so, the rewind crank will not work.

The rewind knob is to the left of the lens mount (as viewed from the front of the camera), above the self timer lever and is marked with a letter "R". Turn it until the bar is horizontal and you should then be able to rewind.

if this has fixed your problem then please take a moment to rate my answer. If it has not done so, then please add a comment instead and I'll come back with additional options for you when I'm next online.

Can this lens fit an olympus C 5060 ?


No, it will not. The C-5060 does not use interchangable lenses. I cannot tell from the picture that you have attached what cameras this will fit. It it was, in fact made by Olympus, it would appear to belong to their line of 35mm film cameras.

Olympus film camera 300mm 4.5 lens remove to clean rear element


Yes, it's fairly straightforward, but the fungus will have permanently damaged the lens element and is likely to spread.

Afterwards you may need to get the element adjusted (collimated) by a lens repairer.

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.

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.
