Re: There are some 24-28mm f2s going cheap, tho not perfect condition

I had a pretty extensive OM lens collection including some of the exotic lenses mentioned here. I've slimmed it down to one OM4Ti body and 6 lenses. The 16mm fE, 18mm f3.5, 21mm f3.5, 24mm f2, 35mm f2, 85mm f2. All of these work brilliantly on my FF Leica M with a novoflex adaptor. The 18mm in particular is superb, and whilst expensive, its a fraction of the cost of a Leica 18mm Super Elmarit.

Use them on Micro43? No, forget it. The MZD lenses perform much better, and then you have the 2x crop factor, which makes everything a normal-telephoto. Given OM super wides are some of the best  made for FF at the time, this seems a bit pointless....
