Just for context, I'm a bit of a gear head and before getting into m4/3 I shot Nikon, including 12 years professionally (all in the digital age). Nikon kit lenses aren't bad, but Olympus kit lenses are better........
Lets see...davidzvi thanks for the comment and interest. I think you are probably correct on your take on the Nikon lens list but I have decided to forego those. Interestingly the guy with the lens list got in touch with the shop owner where he posted his list saying he had another body and some lenses for sale..... She gave me his number, I left a message and a text and so far no response..... after all of this I think I am going to stick with u4/3 and with Oly.
There are some nice older Nikon lenses that might be worth a look to use adapted, just not these. The best options I think for adapted lenses (of several brands) might be for macro since manual AF is the norm in many cases anyway. The Nikon 60 or 105 f/2.8D (the old pre AF-S versions). Sigma and Tokina also made some nice macros. There's also one of my favorites that had a "marco lite" ability, the old 28-105 AF 3.5-4.5D. It will do 1:2 macro from 50-105mm, I used it for event macro and adapted for a little bit when I first got into m4/3.
