I think you have plenty of alternatives, check out the cameraquest  site, 4/3
to various other mounts, you could mount some nice Nikon, Contax,  M42 or
Leica glass on that E-1 in addition to  OM.

Perhaps I should have been more specific.  It would seem to me that  Olympus 
could provide a little more customer service to those who had "brought  them 
to the dance."  Those of us who use their previous professional camera  gear 
(Olympus OM) and have migrated to the e-1 digital are the ones I feel they  
should most strongly support.  Cameraquest does, in fact offer many choices  
loyal users of other manufacturers lenses, however that is what they need to  
be doing as a specialty products supplier.  Olympus, IMHO, needs to support  
long tern Olympus customers.  At $175 the Cameraquest adapter is no great  
bargain (unless you need one and it is the only place you can get it).   This 
adapter is after all, essentially no more or no less than a manual  extension 
 Cameraquest doesn't need to sell it at a reasonable price,  however it would 
seem to me that Olympus should make it available at a more  reasonable price 
to support their current customers as the only people who would  have a need 
for the adapter are those of us who are both previous and  current customers.
