I was doing some experiments lately on using Olympus DSLR to digitize film slides. The result was suprisingly good. The color was definitely better than what I got from a Nikon 4000 dpi film scanner. This picture was taken with a Konica T4 camera and a 28mm lens, in Fujicolor Provia film. I used a Vivitar macro lens on an Olympus E500 DSLR body when digitizing the slide. I would like to share the result with the forum although it was not taken with an Oly camera originally.

I think it's a fantastic slide dupe, Lee!

Really cool that you can use other-mount lenses on the Olympus body!!

Bruce, I am glad you like the picture and the idea of slide duplication. This macro lens has an M42 mount that can be easily put on Olympus DSLR camera body with an adapter ring. So far I don't have any DSLR lens. My collections of vintage manual lenses treat me just fine on the nice E500 digital body. Of course, I love my Oly P&S C8080, which services me very well.
Best regards,
