I have three lenses that came from my Father's OM1 and two from my OM 1.

Access 80-200mm f/4, mostly useless.

Sigma 39-80mm f/3.5, really useless.

Phoenix 100mm f/3.5 macro, useable, but not great.

Vivitar 55mm f/2.8 macro, good IQ, but heavy.

Olympus 50mm f/1.8, good lens, also the first one I ever owned.

I have a fairly good collection of M Zuiko glass, so if I'm going anywhere, the manuals (except the RokFish) get left at home. The manuals are fun to play with, but my reaction time is much better with a fully auto lens.
