    Hi All,

    Iv'e been reading about the versatility of the
    Tamron 28 - 300mm XR VC or DI Lens and have decided it may be my next purchase.
    I'm still a novice and although I think I have picked up a fair bit on how to take a picture I'm still a bit lacking in the technical dept.
    I have found various Tamron lenses for sale but they all say things like Tamron for Nikon or Tamron for Canon etc.
    I can't find any that say Tamron for Olympus!
    I have the Olympus E500 and need to know do I have to get a specific "Tamron" lens for this camera or are they universal and will fit any camera?
    Any advice or help would be appreciated. and remeber your talking to a technophobe, please keep it simple!? LOL

    Simple answer It will not fit your camera.

    Complex answer Tamron do not make 4/3 mount lenses. You have a choice of Pentax/Olympus lenses or a sub set of the Sigma range.

    Good news, it is a super zoom, so will not be that great anyway, so you are probably not missing much.

    This is probably the list of lenses that fit your camera.

    Thanks very much for the simple answer Strawman. I'll stop looking at the Tamrons then...............

    Want something with a bit more oomph for those more distant shots. I also need something that will give me better close up work.
    Back to the drawing board I think..........

    If anything the dearest

    the most complete list can be found here, also check the up and coming.

    If you don`t mind manual focus the older Tamron adaptal 2 primes are very good, especially the 500mm Smile
