 Post subject: OM lenses
PostPosted: Tue Apr 28, 2009 9:09 am 
Hello guys, i have question. Is it worth to buy adapter 4/3 to OM and for example lens Olympus OM 1.4 50mm or Olympus OM 1.8 50mm? I'm asking for that because it is big difference in price than Zuiko 50mm for E-System. And more, when I'd buy adapter i would like to buy next lens (tele would be great). Should I do that? Thanks for any response:)

i have seen some great shots with the 50mm 1.4 & 1.8

if you want to save money, that definitely as an alternative route you can head. i believe on wrotniak.net & biofos.com there are articles where they test the om lenses on the digital bodies in comparison to the digital lenses.

The only problem is that with the OM lenses, you cannot autofocus. Focusing correctly with such a small viewfinder of the 4/3 cameras is difficult sometimes.

Before you buy, try manually focusing your lenses for a while and see how well you do.
