Olympus Cameras

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.

Sigma 70-300 +''no lense attached'' w/ sony a200 dslr

Unfortunately, there are electrical differences between early and later Sigma lenses. Although the bayonet connection is the same, and the lens can fit, it will not necessarily connect electrically with the connections on the camera. Sigma can modify the lens for you, but this can be quite costly, and you may be cheaper to look for an alternative lens.

I am trying to find a cheaper wide angle lens

Hello till1118, 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 or You'll find other lenses out there from secondary manufacturers for half the price. Good luck.

Unscrewing lenses

Hello toccata, It sounds like your lens mount is cross-threaded. Have you gotten a lens off and looked closely at your camera lens threads. Are they crunched together. You may need to get your cameras lens mount replaced and check all your lenses and see if the threads aren't cross threaded. If a lens has bad threads, don't use it anymore.

E-330 choice of lenses

Hi Fredher,

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.

All lenses above all made for the working pros.

Hope they are helpful.

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, the EVOLT body, Zuiko Digital 14-45mm F3.5-5.6 and 40-150mm F3.5-4.5 lenses are not splash proof.
