this is even better than the sigma 24/1.8. wonder if it's really Leica or if it's an panasonic with a Leica badge on it

I would be interested to know if this lens is compatable with the Olympus E500 FourThirds System?

The whole point of four thirds lenses is they are all compatible with anything using the four thirds standard so it will be fine yes.

The aperture ring is also in the traditional Olympus location. At the front of the lens.
