EM-5 and OM Vivitar (Komine) 200 3.5...

neat...bought this lens (and four other OM mount) nearly 10 yrs ago to try out with my E1.

never appreciated it(really did not give it a fair shake) or any of the others (other than the Soligor) and it just sat as an ornament for 10 years.

recently, while researching manual focus lenses bang for buck, it came up a few times.
decided to give it a try and it seems i should keep it...
it is not a close focuser so flowers are really not it's forte.
the EM-5 really brings out the absolute best in Legacy glass.
i'm sure these are all wide open (3.5)...

BTW i do not have a work flow anymore since E5 and EM-5.

LR3 and PSCS3 do not recognize the two and i have not spent on upgrading PC and software to LR4. that is why the images sometimes contain EXIF and sometimes not. i am loosey goosey(sometime RAW to DNG then to jpeg, sometimes from Oly viewer to jpeg tehn sharpened in PSC3 then web. converted from this or that to jpeg/web.
alway shot RAW though.
