    Olympus OM2 and M42 lenses

    Hello
    I own a fine Olympus OM2 and I have several M42 lenses from other cameras. Is there any way (adapter?) to use M42 screw lenses in the OM2 ?? Or, otherwise, is there any way to adapt the Zuiko lens to M42 thread cameras ?
    Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    JF: I have both an M42 to OM adapter and an OM to M42 adapter. You lose wide-open metering in either case, but it gives me flexibility. Recently I have used them together on an OM as a non-auto extension tube. OM to M42 adapter on the camera, into which is scrwed the M42 to OM adapter. Then a Zuiko lens. Works well.

    Sorry I don't have spares to offer, but I believe mine were purchased from Spiratone, so you may be able to find the same or similar under another name.

    Honey, I promise no more searching eBay for cameras.
