D.I.Y. Fisheye Lens
Since I bought my E-500, I had been dreaming of a fisheye lens. But until now, I still cannot afford one. What I like about the fisheye lens are the effect of the round distortion and it can cover super ultra wide angle of sight... Read More...

OM Zuiko Auto-S 50mm f/1.8 Lens

Just bought an OM Zuiko 50mm f/1.8 lens to add into my lens collection. It's a prime and manual lens, where it has no zoom and focussing has to be manually done. But the real attraction to me is it's aperture number of f/1.8!!! The fastest lens in my collection to-date...

Measuring just 32mm and weighs merely 165g (5.8 oz), this standard lens is extremely compact and it is the most lightweight version among all ZUIKO standard lenses. Naturally, it is also the most affordable in this series and has sold in big numbers over the years as a bundled lense for any new purchase of a OM SLR. With a simple, straight forward optical formulation of 6 elements in 5 groups, Its optical design provides superb definition for maximum edge-to-edge sharp images throughout the focusing range. Its closest focusing distance is maintained at 0.45m throughout the years since its introduction. Other than it can be used as a high performance day to day lense for general photography, many OM photographers also take advantage of its high resolving power as a good, cheap alternative bellow lense for close-up photography.

OM Zuiko 50mm f/1.8 lens...




OM to Four-Thirds Adapter needed to connect the OM lens with Four-Thirds system DSLR...

Some test shots from the OM lens...



















So far, quite satisfied with the result. I think Zuiko Digital lens can get better result compared to this OM lens. As this OM lens can give you vintage colour on your images... :D

I share your excitement. I like shooting with lenses with a good aperture..and f/1.8 is great!

I was using alot of my 50mm prime lens with f/1.8 and just recently added a new one sigma 17-70mm to my collection :)

bug...the bokeh from f/1.8 is just great...but unfortunately..this lens got no autofocus...need to focus myself...
hows the 17-70mm???...great lens??..my next target is a macro lens :D

My Bug Life said...

Yeah I like the bokeh effect from f/1.8. That's why I tend to favour lenses that offer that kind of apertures. I am very pleased with my sigma lens. Read good reviews about it before purchasing.

Gosh..I have like 3 other lenses on my wishlist...macro, telephoto and fisheye. Also, I need to invest in a good external flash.

Photography's really an expensive hobby!

bug...agree with you that photography is real expensive hobby...and fast lens are quite expensive...it takes me 2 years of saving to add more lens to my collection... :D
