    Can anyone help me ID this lens? The seller only knows it fits the OM-1 and 2
    I want to make sure this is a decent lens before purchasing and also to make sure I get the right adapter.
    Hopefully these pics are enough to ID

    It is a Sigma 400mm f/5.6. I don't know much about quality.

    If it fit an om-1 then it's an om to m4/3 adapter. If you don't know this, take a small flashlight and the lens to a semi-dark room. Shine the light into each end at an angle(not directly thru it) and look thru the other end. You should only see a little dust if it's in really good condition. Look for fungus( looks like what you might see on old fruit) or haze( milky ) or scratches. If it's clear of that, check that the aperture blades are clean and move smoothly and the focus ring turns smoothly. Look for signs of being dropped. If that is all good, buy it ( around $100-$150 on e-bay) Oh one more thing, you'll need a tripod mount if it doesn't have one, because handheld 400mm is very difficult to get sharp.
