The OM 50mm f/1.8 is darn good. But, keep in mind that it's at least 40 years old!

The SC/MC is less important than how many battles your lens had passed.

Yes, that makes sense. I bought a new old stock SC for $75 and MC for $130. Fingers crossed as they haven't arrived yet. Shipped from Japan.

Again fingers crossed as Japan is notorious for have a climate and humidity that promotes fungus and mildew. My sister was an exhange student in Japan for 3 years. She says the smell of mildew reminds her of of Japan because it's so common there.

So hopefully the lenses were stored in a proper dry warehouse. If not, I don't have a lot of money in them.
