    I have recently come into a OM-1 outfit and am very happy with its performance. However I also found out I cannot really adapt my M42 lens to the OM in a meaningful way.

    I am very partial to the Tessar and Sonnar look. Are there any Zuiko or third party lens that are modified triplets?

    You may find that for the short telephotos, the 85/2 and 100/2.8 will have "the look". Also, the 35/2.8 may too.

    Possibly, but If I remember well there's more distance between the lens and focal plane. That needs an adapter with a corrector lens.
