Sony E body + Olympus OM lens


Allows using full focal length and manual aperture settings.

The 46mm flange focal depth of the OM lens is relatively large even among SLR systems. This size mandates a 28mm adapter for the E bayonet lock, which consists of a ring and the bolted-on OM bayonet lock. This is a quite simple system, because the lock and release lug are placed within the housing of the lens. Basic OM-NEX adapter rings are usually inexpensive (about $20). OM lenses project a fullframe image, which means the 36*24 size NEX sensor will be covered by it.

Another extra adapter type is the OM-NEX tilt-shift converter, which is easy to install and operate. Find them over here:

If you're interested in small things, macro adapters are also available. This will move the lens a bit away from the sensor (shortening the near focus point) without interfering with the imaging capabilities of the lens. Some can be found here:

In terms of compatibility, we distinguish four separate categories:

This means that you'll be able to apply the lens on the camera in question with a proper adapter, and full focus range will be available with it (often with aperture control too). If AF is supported, you'll see it in the description.
This means that due to the flange focal depth or other factor this conversion would be normally unfeasible, but with some compromises (e.g. using a speedbooster adapter) can be made possible.
This means that the flange focal depth should make mounting and using inifinty focus possible, but for some reason there are no adapter rings available or other factors make it unviable.
This means that you won't be able to mount your lens due to mechanical incompatibility or the difference in flange focal depth doesn't make inifinity focus possible. Although numerous lenses can be mounted on cameras without infinity focus, but this cannot be considered actual compatibility.

Additional information for compatible variations:

manual focus (on the lens, with its own control ring)
autofocus available (AF controlled by the camera body)
manual aperture control (on the lens, with its own control ring)
automatic aperture control (controlled by the camera body)
speedbooster (focal reducer) adapters are available
macro (variable length) adapters are available
tilt-shift (or other flexible) adapters can be used
