Micro 4/3 Olympus OM Zuikos - ideal for m4/3 and 4/3 cameras

Click the link below to read Hackers Love Zuikos, a discussion of the merits of using OM Zuiko lenses on your modern DSLR or EVIL.


My 50/1.8 doesn't work on my OM2n any more due to sticky aperture blades. On an adapter it's superb on my m43 bodies, my 5D classic and hopefully my "new" XE-1.

Apart from the sticky blades I could say the same for my 24/2.8 and even the lowly 135/3.5.
Thank you for the article. I always argued that OM Zuikos are one of the best choices for adapting in any mirrorless system, due to the combination of advantages mentioned in the article.

I have personally used the 24 f/2.8, 50 f/1.8, 50 f/3.5 macro, 35 f/2 and 85 f/2 with a number of Pens, E-M5, E-M1 as well as Fuji X-M1 and X-E2. Of course, I do still use them on OM-4 and OM-40 film cameras.

Thanks again!
