     I was using f/5.6 to get the speed up as it was quite breezy out.  That 
reduced the DOF to just bearable.  I could have used a telephoto at a distance 
at an even larger aperture, but I did not want to turn this into a major 

     BTW:  I retired the Koday KD7590 as I could no longer justify using a 
camera where I had no manual control of the focusing.  I pulled out the E-510 
that I had bought last year, which still needs to have the back of the body 
removed so I can repair the micro connector.  Since I don't have a spare OM-4/3 
adapted for MF lenses, I dragged the 14.5-45 lens that came with the E-500 kit. 
 Charged up the battery, found a 52mm UV and LP filter, then went through the 
manual to get a grip on the unfamiliar functions.  To my surprise, this camera 
and lens fit into the small Lowepro TLZ Mini belt holster that I was using with 
the Kodak.  I'll soon take it out on my daily cycling trip and I'll havev some 
photos tomorrow.

     I have ordered another OM-4/3 adapter, and I will first try this kit out 
with a Quantaray 28-80/3.5-4.5 3-touch MF lens.  It has the 62mm filter ring 
that I much prefer and it has a nice feel to it.
