The OM 24 Shift is a gorgeous lens. I assume you mean this lens?





I had this years ago, but sold it as I did not think its resolving ability was up to modern digital sensors. Wish it were different as it just exuded quality in its build. Loved the built in filters, etc. However, I was happier with the Canon shift lenses--especially the newer ones. Course, now I find the 17L too big with my new Sony A7r. Wish I had a smaller shift lens again.....

Just picked up an OM 21/3.5 and a 21/2. I think I've got uses for both, but we'll see.

Since we're on a Zuiko kick, I just received an OM 50mm F2 auto-macro. Initial tests suggest it's very sharp and renders nicely. I was hoping for something like the Zeiss 50MP in a smaller, cheaper package and so far it seems to deliver.

luvwine, yes that's the one I was talking about. What a jewel that is. Bummer that yours was not up to par (?). At the time, they were better than the Canon 24/TS-E Mk1, and had more shift, but I expect the mk2 and 17/TS-E have caught up at this point. I had 2 of them at one point (24/shift) and the 35/shift MC-version also. All were great. The 35 was amazingly small, all things considered, and basically covered 645 format.

I found a Canon FD 24L I couldn't say no to. I was supposed to be looking for a 35 TS but got distracted.

not sure if it qualifies as an "alt-lens", but I got the Sigma 60mm f/2.8 DN Art for my NEX-7 as a christmas gift just a few weeks ago.

Ed, what did you shoot the OM 24 on? My recollection was that the Canon 24 was as sharp or sharper. The Zeiss 35 PC definitely sharper, and the new 17 and 24 Canon T/S are even better. I was frankly disappointed with the OM shift as it was my first pricey alt lens and I sold it at a loss. Wish it had been better. It did have a lot of shift and great build quality. Sigh.....

My latest alt lens is a perfect OM 50/2 macro. I bought it in anticipation of a Sony A7, but have put that body one hold for now. I bought an OM 40/2, as well.

@ lenticular:



Nice one. Both OMs were US-sourced; the 50/2 was literally LNIB. Cheers, KL

Ah, Cliff: it is a perfect copy! Thank you. Actually, now that I have had a chance to mount it on the GX-7, I find it's just a bit too heavy for meŚwant to buy it back (discounted, of course!). Cheers, KL

I thought my G2 died when I was using a Nikon flash. I found a G1 and snapped it up. The battery from the G1 revived the G2.

Here's the G1 with a new friend.

I gave in to temptation and bought a Zuiko 21mm f3.5 MC - the asking price was a little higher than I wanted to pay, but it included the original hood (which some eBay sellers think is worth over $100 on its own... )

Those 21/3.5 hoods are rare. $100 might be much but they easily fetch $50-75 on the open market, no problem.

luvwine: I shot the OM 24 shift on the EOS film cameras (1VHS mainly). I always found it a nice lens, but with the 24/TS-E mk 2 out now, that is another (better?) option for Canon shooters too, which might have affected price/value of the OM 24 shift.

After much debate over buying a Sony A7R, I ended up picking up a Fuji X-E2 and XF 23mm f1.4 R instead (gotta love those pirate names... )
