    Is there any slide copying setup for m4/3 or do I have to use the macro lens method?

    I don't know of any native Micro Four Thirds method of copying slides. You can get a slide-copying attachment for a bellows, or a slide holder like the Nikon ES-1 that attaches to the front of a macro lens.

    I use a Micro-Nikkor 55mm/3.5 lens and an ES-1 slide adapter. I had to put filter extension rings between the lens and the ES-1 so I could image the whole slide.

    I used a 1:1 slide copier briefly but found it faster and easier to get good results with a slide scanner. I found an old CanonScan FS4000US (4000DPI) and used Vuescan to drive it.
