Jan Steinman's current gear

Olympus E-3
Olympus E-300 (EVOLT E-300)

Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 12-60mm 1:2.8-4.0 SWD
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 150mm 1:2.0
This is perhaps the ultimate "candid portraiture" lens! Sharp as a knife, so be careful using it on older subjects!
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 35-100mm 1:2.0
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50-200mm 1:2.8-3.5 SWD
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50mm 1:2.0 Macro
I call this my "bag of primes." So sharp it hurts, at any focal length or aperture, from corner to corner!
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm 1:4.0
Sigma 4.5mm F2.8 EX DC HSM Circular Fisheye
Venus Laowa 4mm F2.8 Fisheye MFT

  • Lensbaby 1.6x Telephoto
  • Lensbaby 3G ("Sputnix") 50mm ƒ2 Tilt
  • Metabones Speedbooster Ultra Pricey, but well worth it to anyone who has more than a few film lenses in the same mount. The one other focal reducers are measured by.
  • Olympus OM Teleconverter 2X-A
  • Olympus OM Teleconverter X1.4-A Invisible on the Olympus OM 350/2.8, for an effective 500/2.0!
  • Olympus OM Telescoping Extension Tube I call this my "field-hardened bellows." Indispensable with the set of range-specific OM Zuiko macro lenses.
  • Olympus OM Zuiko 135mm ƒ4.5 Macro An outstanding general purpose macro lens that focuses from half-life-size to infinity on the Telescoping Extension Tube.
  • Olympus OM Zuiko 180mm ƒ2.8
  • Olympus OM Zuiko 20mm ƒ2 Macro
  • Olympus OM Zuiko 300mm ƒ4.5
  • Olympus OM Zuiko 350mm ƒ/2.8 What a wonderful lens! Build quality is superb. The focus ring operates with the slightest touch of a single finger.
  • Olympus OM Zuiko 35mm ƒ2
  • Olympus OM Zuiko 38mm ƒ2.8 Macro
  • Olympus OM Zuiko 500mm ƒ8 Reflex The most amazing mirror lens I've ever used, by a long shot! Rivals refracting lenses in contrast and sharpness, edge-to-edge.
  • Olympus OM Zuiko 50mm ƒ/1.2
  • Olympus OM Zuiko 55mm ƒ1.2
  • Olympus OM Zuiko 600mm ƒ6.5
