Olympus and Four Thirds Cameras

I bought a 4/3 to OM mount adapter soon after getting my E-510. I used a manual single lens reflex film camera for many years, but never could afford one of the faster lenses. It seemed a bit crazy to me that after spending nearly a thousand dollars for two sophisticated designed for digital ZD lenses that I was limited to a slow f/3.5 to 5.6 lens. I had used a 50mm f/2.2 Fujinon for years along with a 135mm f/2.8 third-party lens and both were faster than the kit zooms. I was used to the ability to isolate subjects from the background with a fast (well, relatively fast) lens on 35mm. It was just too tempting to give the faster standard lenses a try.
