    Default t-adapter

    I bought an el-cheapo 500mm mirror lens from Adorama about 10 years ago for use with my film Pentax 35mm SLR. Just for laughs, I'd like to try it on my E-520 (1000mm!!). The good news is that it mounts via a T-adapter. So, all I need is a T-adapter for Oly 4/3.

    I ordered one from Adorama ($25) about 4 months ago and am still waiting. Does anyone know anywhere else that I can buy such a thing? These are mainly used for mounting cameras onto astronomy scopes, I think, but occasionally used for camera lenses like mine.

    Obviously, the T-adapter has to be pretty inexpensive (about $25), since the lens itself only cost $100 and I doubt very much that it is going to be all that great even when/if I get it mounted.

    Thanks for the info guys. I had searched B&H earlier and somehow didn't find anything, and then I looked on Gadgetinfinity and didn't find anything. So I got the idea they were hard to find. Thanks!
