Ep3 with an OM 50mm 1.8
Some street shots on London and the first day out with the Pen.

The old lens was a bit soft and I hadn't got used to the heft of this camera but ergonomically it hits the spot in the way the E1 did.
I kept the lens as wide open as possible.

regards
george.

Hmmm, lacking a bit of contrast IMHO.

Looks quite hazy and not crisp enough to my eyes...

I've got the OM 50 f1.8 Auto-S.
I think it's a real bargain. Mine cost me around €10 on ebay.

Here's a small gallery taken with this lens.

Really enjoy using this lens on the Olympus m4/3 cameras.

That is one of my favourite legacy lenses, it handles really well on the E-Pn cameras.

But my immediate reaction on seeing your images was that you have a very different lens to the one I have - even wide open, mine is very sharp, and has good saturation and contrast.

It is kind of hard to compare because a factor could be the lighting in your shots, but I was quite surprised by my reaction; enough to mention it, anyway.

Nice shots. im just wondering how the focus is with the native lenses? is it really as fast as they say?

A New Hope

My hopes may have been ravage
and dreams turned to dust
but my soul will struggle
through this darkest night
and in this darkness,
my battered soul shall mend
to dream new dreams,
to hope without end.

I've got the same lens, just stop it down to 2.8 and its excellent for the money

actually I got it for free since it was my father lens 30 years ago, still working good.
