Olympus Lens Question


21 Jan 2013 11:49PM
New to the forum and I have a question about Olympus lens compatability. I have a OM10 and a bag of lenses I inherited. I've been using Nikon SLR's for years and then converted to Nikon DSLR's. When I coverted to digital I was able to use my manual and autofocus Nikkor lenses from my 35mm SLR on the DSLR.

Question is, can I use the manual lenses from the Olympus OM10 on a Olympus DSLR? I just hate to see 'em sitting the bag going to no use.

Welcome Smile Yes you can, with an adaptor but you lose the camera's autofocus

Welcome x2.

You can also use those zuiko lenses on your Nikon DSLR via an adapter if you don`t mind stop down metering and manual focus.
