I see there's been some long running threads on FM for Zuiko images, but there are none currently.

The most recent one with many pages of posts appears to be from September 2011 to April 2012: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/909179/0

Given what appears to be an excellent value to cost ratio I've decided to pick up a couple of lenses that I'll adapt to Canon and use on the 6D. I just ordered the 28/3.5 and 50/3.5 macro as well as the Fotodiox basic adapter to EOS.

If the lenses live up to my expectations I hope to be able to post some images here once they arrive (likely late this week). Is anyone else using the Zuikos very often? Do you want to share your images in this thread?

Thanks for viewing.
Dave

I dont shoot digital frequently, but when I do I like my colors highly unrealistic. 55 and 50 macro

Here are some from the Zuiko 50/1.8 AKA the almost as cheap as a body cap lens...it is actually quite "character" of a lens. I too like my colors "fried"

Colours look good to me. More evocative of mood than flavour.

My name is Ben and I'm a Zuikoholic. I have a pretty nice collection of OM glass - 24/2.8, 35/2, 50/1.2, 50/1.4, 50/1.8, and 85/2. Contemplating a 50 f2 macro. I also have a 50mm addiction, clearly, and redisburning's shots above aren't helping.... Also thinking of adding a 135/2.8.

You could definitely pick a more expensive batch of lenses to be addicted to! Leica... Zeiss...

I like the expression in the first one.

I too am really enjoying the OM Zuikos. Here is a three-frame stitch with the 50/1.4 on micro four thirds:






I also recently got an old OM-2N and I'm starting to take a few pictures on film. I'm loving getting to finally use the whole image circle! Here's one from the 50/1.4 on my first roll of film:

I'm really happy to see this wonderful image with this combo. I just picked up this lens to use on my a7R when it arrives.

The late 50/1.4 is one of my favorite lenses. Here it is pulling macro duty with a fun little toy - the Vivitar 2x Macro focusing teleconverter.

I see you're missing a 28, I recommend the f2!

it's really good for close subjects with it's close range correction:

One from my garden, the 100mm f/2 on an original Canon 5D:

This lens has been called the "queen of bokeh" in the OM system. This was probably shot at around f/4 or f/5.6; there's a wider open version of this image, but it's too much.

Thank you all for sharing your images.

My 28/3.5 and 50/3.5 macro were delivered today and first impressions are very good. KEH's EX rated lenses look near flawless to me besides a small amount of focus ring and aperture ring wear. The build quality of the lenses is great too with smooth focus helicoids and nice aperture rings.

BUT... I can't actually shoot with them yet. I made the mistake of using Amazon's super saver shipping and my adapter ordered Sunday night has not even shipped yet.

Oh well, I guess I'll take some sample shots early next week when the adapter finally shows up.

My adapter won't be here until probably Tuesday so I can't use my lenses, but the next best thing may to take beauty shots OF them. Is it heresy to take photos of vintage Zuiko lenses with a 4-axis image stabilized autofocus macro lens?

Both 50 f/3.5 macro and 28 f/3.5

Only the 28

Glad you like it, it's an awesome night lens, I too am waiting to use it on a 7r, the 50/1.4 too.

I think you'll like the 50/3.5 it's a bit slow but other than that it's perfect. Best OoF rendering I've seen on a lens tho that is by my taste most people think it's pretty bad. I guess with 50/2 and 50MP and 60ME I havent used it much lately

M43 really opened my eyes. Wish I was introduced with Zuikos years ago.

OM 50/1.4 was the first kid on the block. Way it renders the oof areas blew me...
