    Hello...just starting to learn how to use my E-pl3. So far I love everything about it. I have the stock lens. I would like to find a bargin 50mm lens for an everyday type use. Any suggestions would be helpful. I have been interested in some of the older 50mm's lens ....for budget reasons and what I have read so for seems like a good choice?

    Anyway Im enjoying reading this fourm and hope to learn more about this camera.

    Welcome, bobby.

    I think you may have posted this is the wrong sub-forum, as this one is primarily used to address questions directly to representatives of B&H Photo. Perhaps an admin can get it moved.

    As to your question, there are almost innumerable options among old manual focus 50mm lenses that can be adapted for use on your E-PL3. As far as a specific recommendation, I would suggest you stick to a major brand (i.e. Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Konica, Minolta)...the differences in lenses across manufacturers are much smaller than the similarities and more of the difference in a given lens comes down to condition than to brand. I would suggest just looking around until you find a lens that appears to be in good shape at a price you like and then finding an adapter to fit that lens.
