I have an Oly E510 and the MF-1 adapter so that I can use my old OM film lenses on the 510. I understand that I have to shoot in aperature priority mode but I don't see how I tell the camera what the aperature is that I set on the OM film lens. Any ideas?

Sorry, looks like no one here knows. Try DPreview.com, their Olympus forum is much more active.

You set the camera to A and turn the little wheel on the top to set the apurture :D

Which lens are you using?

I have the OM 50mm 1.4 and 1.8 coming in the mail, can't wait....

Cheers, Don

In case you missed the humor, the "little wheel" is the control dial :D
