    Nikon 20mm f3.5 UD vs Olympus 21mm f3.5

    I have the Olympus and love it but I'm thinking of switching to Nikon....I prefer the Nikon bodies.

    How do the two lenses rate? I worry that I'll miss my Zuiko. I'll probably buy both lenses/systems then sell the loser but curious to hear your throughts.

    Never had zuiko, but I have nikkor UD: great lens, sharp, and not so expensive. Only downsides are: big, need big filter, some falloff wide open. I did not noticed any distortion in normal everyday usage.

    I have both, but I prefer the Olympus. The OM lens is smaller and lighter, and I also prefer the quality of the images.

    Why? Are you going to get rid of the OM system if the Nikon system is better? I think it's best to have them all, it doesn't really save any money selling your OM stuff.

    I do think the nikon system is better: more lenses, accessories, bodies with other features, motor drives, etc.

    However, my primary reason is because I just don't like the OM bodies: too small.

    Optics to me is secondary.
