    I have in my possession an Olympus SM-R endoscopic adapter for the OM system (with the appropriate #9 view screen). Does anyone know of an alternate use for this gadget? It seems far too interesting to toss out.

    For those interested in how I came to possess such an oddball, I purchased a small lot of SLR gear from the physician I worked for a couple of years ago and that was the only lens he had for the OM2n body.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers,

    Adam

    Hmmmmm, I wonder if it could be adapted for use with a telescope or a spotting scope

    I would describe the attachment point as blade-like clamps. I'm not sure that it would easily support the weight of the camera.
