    Sigma's lenses for the E500 should fit without an adapter, as should others
    made for 4/3 cameras.

    Fit a Sigma lens for what camera to an E500?

    A Sigma lens in Canon FD or AF mount will not be adaptable to an
    Olympus. Other Sigma lenses can be adaptable.

    Sigma manufactures lenses that fit Olympus E-500. If you want to
    buy a new Sigma for your Oly, ask your friendly salesperson to
    find one with the correct mount (it is called "Four-Thirds").

    If you are asking about a spesific Sigma lens in your posession, the
    answer depends on what lens this is. Sigma makes a lot of aftermarket
    lenses, and some can be fitted to an Oly E-500 with an adapter, others
    can't.
