    Hi Group

    It says it all in the subject really.

    I have an Olympus OM10 with a variety of lens, cable releases, flash guns
    etc.

    So the question is will they fit an Olympus Digital SLR, if so which model
    (or other make/model)?

    TIA, Ron

    They don't fit any camera natively, but you can get an OM Adapter for
    all of the Olympus dSLRs which will let you use them.

    Supplementary Question: Has anyone used it and what sort of results have
    been achieved?

    I don't have Olympus and especially that lens. But if you use any adpter
    then.

    - Lens is lens if it's a good lens (good glass) then it should be able to
    capture good IQ

    - If the lens isn't designed for some specific camera body then some auto
    options may not work, because auto-option usually require electonic
    connection to control the lens. And most if not all newer AF lens have
    option to switch to MANUAL

    - And if the lens has option to switch to MANUAL then you should be able to
    use the lens to capture whatever the quality the lens can capture.

    Is it worth the trouble? for knowledge I think it probably worth $30-50
    for the answer, but if for normal or daily use then I don't think it's worth
    $1-5 of trouble.

  6. You can also get an adapter and use a Canon Rebel XT, XTi, D30, D40, etc.
    for the Olympus OM mount - I have 3 OM mount lenses that I use with an
    adapter on my Rebel XT. The flashes will only really work with a slave
    adapter on most DSLR's because they use have computer controlled
    inferfacing.
