I bought an Olympus E500 about three and a half years ago before my daughter was born. We bought it without researching much--thinking Olympus was a reliable brand, all DSLR camers are the same, etc. I was looking at a Zuiko f/1.4 lens but the ones for a DSLR are hundreds more than the manual. I'm not comfortable with my purchase of an Olympus camera and before I start spending $100's on a lens, I wonder if I shouldn't consider purchasing another camera all together. BUT if I can use a manual f/1.4, then I'd rather wait another year or two before I consider getting a different brand. Anyone had experience using a manual lens on a DSLR? Would I need to get an adapter or would the OM lens fit directly on my camera?
