    Exclamation Olympus

    Hi...
    I have sent out e-mails to a whole lot of stalls but none have replied me. It must have been about 2-4 days? Checked out websites but prices do vary huh? So do anyone have the acerage prices of the Olympus E-520 (twin kit) which consist of the 14-42mm and 40-150mm kit lenses. Got this piece of information from ephotozine.
    I would also like to know the prices of the Olympus 50mm f/1.8, Sigma 24mm F1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro, Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 14-45mm F3.5-5.6, Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 And Olympus Zuiko 50-250mm f/5. Do any of you somehow have the prices? Thanks.

    this shd be post in four thirds system forum.

    however, some of the lens in your list does not belong four thirds.

    eg. Sigma 24mm F1.8EX (maybe other mount) unless it is a new lens that I am not aware of,

    Olympus Zuiko F1.8 belong to OM system not four thirds, however you can still mount on Olympus E520 thru adapter, you may want to consider Zuiko Digital 50mm F2 macro instead.

    Olympus Zuiko 50-250mm f/5 does not belong to four thirds mount as well. 4/3 have 50-200mm F2.8-3.5

    Olympus Zuiko Digital 14-45 is out of production and have been replace by Zuiko Digital 14-42 F3.5-5.6

    for the price list which you asking for, pls see four thirds price list

    hope this help...

    Erm... Then are there any lenses which have almost the same featrues as the above lenses that are compatible with the E520?
    And do you mean I have to buy the 4/3 Adapter Mount in order to use the above lenses which I want?

    If you are using the Zukio digital lens then u dun need the adaptor. If you are getting the OM lenses then you'll need it as they are older lens for the flim SLR. The 50 f1.8 is a OM lens.

    to ans your question,

    Sigma 24mm F1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro, my apologise, didnt know that this lens is also available for four thirds. cant assist you on the price and where to get, but based on sigma website, it is selling at USD500 which is ard SGD700 after conversation, however you may want to check with john 3:16 at funan if they bring in for four thirds. Zuiko Digital have a similar focal length which is 25mm F2.8 selling less then or ard SGD400.

    Olympus Zuiko 50-250mm f/5 macro... this is an OM mount, have to use OM-Four thirds adapter and only can use in manual focus. not sure where to get it too but I am quite sure it pretty hard to get a new pcs. If u are keen, u may want to try B&S section see anyone selling.
    If you want new macro zoom lens u may want to wait for the new 4/3 Sigma 70-200 F2.8 macro, price not release yet. If macro is what you interested in, I suggest you to look into Macro prime lens like Sigma 105mm macro(ard 700), Sigma 150mm macro (ard 1k), ZD 50mm F2 macro (<800) or wait for the ZD 100mm macro which not sure when will be release.

    IMO, for macro shooting, prime lens shd give u a better result.
