p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Olympus PEN F 38mm 1.8 on A7


First i was afraid about the sharpness of this old Lens.
So i tested it against my M-Rokkor 40mm 2.0.
To my surprise the Oly is much sharper, and has more
Microcontrast as the Rokkor.
So perhaps the Rokkor is faulty.
But a few Weeks ago i had 2 of them and two Leica Summicron-C.
And none of them were faulty.

Olympus _ M-Rokkor







So what is the Olympus on the A7
Great Vintage Look:
-pretty strong vignetting and corner smearing
-very nice Olympus colours
-nice Swirl Bokeh
But great centre sharpness about APS circle.

In this pictures only little Exposure correction.

i had it on the nex, but i actually liked the 40 cron and pen 42/1.2 (not as contrasty but more "magic") better so i sold it. really liked the color and size, wasn't crazy about the bokeh. i've been thinking of trying it again on FF (or the 40/1.4).

I still have most of the Pen F lenses from 25mm to 150mm and, like sebboh, used them on NEX cameras. I liked the little 38/1.8 a lot.

I always wanted to get the 38mm f/1.8 when I was using the NEX-5R. Originally was too cheap to buy it and went with the cheaper Konica 40mm f/1.8, which I did (and do) enjoy. Nice looking lens!

Did you crop the A7 photos above?

No.
I quickly sold my A7 but kept most of my lenses. I still have the F Zuiko Auto-S 38/1.8 and will no doubt use it again if I get hold of an A7r ii at a good price. The 38mm can probably work as a good complementary lens to the coming Voigtländer 40/1.2. Thank you for the images!

I really enjoyed it on my NEX-7, not as much on my A7r.
