OM 50mm F1.4 Landscapes on the 5n.
Feb 19, 2012

I added another old OM lens to my collection. I managed to bag a decent OM 50mm F1.4 for the princely sum of £60. I know what I am getting with these lenses, they never disappoint and neither does this one, usable at all apertures. I shot these all at F5.6, which seems to be the sweet spot for this lens. The light was right for testing the lens so I just focused to infinity and fired away, dead easy. The resolution is excellent on all these old OM's on this sensor (5n) and edge sharpness is also bang on, hopefully you'll be able to see this from the shots. These are nothing special but if you've never been to England and wondered what rural England looks like this should give you a pretty good idea, spring looks like it's on the way too :).
