Re: OM lenses to Micro 4/3

I've added many old manual lenses to my collection since acquiring my E-M5 3 months ago (probably too many) and my favorites are all OM's, 28mm f2.8, 50mm f1.8 and 50mm f3.5 Macro.

There is something about the build quality that makes you want to caress them, and even though the adapter makes them longer, they are still very manageable and one hell of a lot of fun to use

I love the way you can set up the E-M5 to zoom in on your subject (up to 14x) with the Fn2 custom button to nail the focus, and the OM's can give you some smooth backgrounds to boot!

Here's mine with the 50mm f1.8 fitted;
