    Does anyone know if the E-1 (and its 4/3 system) will accept "older"
    Zuiko lenses, such as the ones used by the venerable OM-1 and OM-2?

    Thanks

    Jeff,

    Thanks for the link. However, under close scrutiny, it seems that the
    adapter is for putting larger 4/3 lenses on the OM series. What I am
    interested is the opposite: using old Zuiko OM lenses on the new Olympus
    E-1 digital camera.

    I don't believe so. These are smaller lens with a different light gathering
    configuration.

    While this is POTENTIALLY good news for Marc...tread cautiously. As of this
    time, it is only vaporware. I.E., I wouldn't rush out and put down a lot of
    money on another product (E1? perhaps) if this is a real important issue to
    you until it is possible to buy one.
