    My comments were specifically about my pocket Canon, but also seemed
    appropriate for what I read about the majority of DSLRs. And as always
    there are some that are just a little different from the majority.
    Thanks for the comments.

  2. You can quite easily use your old OM lenses on Canon digital SLRs -
    it's all down to the register distance, which in this case is enough
    to allow an adapter ring/plate/collar to fit. You save a pile of dosh,
    and continue to use lenses you're familiar with.
    An adapter from Hong Kong via ebay will cost you around a tenner.

    I looked on e- bay,and elsewhere, today, and found them at about 25
    quid, but that was just one attempt. Since it seems that a Canon is a
    very good choice anyway, I will look out for one, probably with the base
    lens, and then look for the adapter for my Olympus lenses.

  4. Price goes up and down - I got some from big-is, adplo, etc. You'll
    pay more for ones with an incorporated chip to simulate a Canon lens.
    I just use the basic manual adapter and it's fine. They're so cheap
    that every lens in regular use can have its own one full-time.

    That's what I was expecting to find. It's all in the Search wording.

    As an amateur new to dSLRS myself, I posted my own questions halfway
    through this thread. I too wanted to thank you all for your replies.
