    Over the past few years, I've owned most of the Zuiko glass that folks of normal means can afford. These range from the 16mm to the 400mm. My favorite is the 85mm f2. Others would include the 21mm f2, either of the 50mm macro or 50mm normals for that matter. I usually have a set of extension tubes in my kit. Non Zuiko favorites would include several of the Tamron SP line, including the 90mm f2.5, the 180mm f2.5, 300mm f2.8 and the 400mm f4. Bill Barber

    Good Evening,

    100mm F2--sharpest of the lot, I think.

    Oh, now that's tough.

    Depending on when you asked me, I might choose the 85/2, the 35/2.8, the 50/1.4, or even the 28-48/4.

    Today I've been scanning some 50/1.4 shots (ERA 100 developed in Rodinal 1:50 - a lovely combination), so that's high in my favours right now.

    Best,
    Alan

    My "death grip" Zuikos would be the 35/2.8 and 100/2.8. Both are extremely well-rounded.

    But the 35-80/2.8, which is rather, uh, pricey, has got to be one of the finest lenses Olympus has ever made and lives on one of the OM bodies most of the time. It's larger and heavier than the F2.8 Zuiko primes, but is distinctly usable and downright beautiful in 3D'ish renditions. It is such a sharp and contrasty lens that the focus "snaps" into place.

    But at the end of my life, I'll probably still have the 35/2.8 and 100/2.8. (silvernosed, of course).

    When you turn your camera on, does it return the favor?

    That would be my choice as well.
    the f/3.5 50 mm would be included as a third.

    24/2.8 is a very fine lens. There was a 24 mm lens shoot-out somewhere and this lens came in second...behind a Canon zoom lens.

    I have had a 50/1.4 for a while now, but yet to use it, as I've been very content with the 50/1.8 "made in japan" lens.

    The F.Zuiko Auto-S 50/1.8 is an excelent lens.

    Another vote for the 24mm 2.8. Here in Tokyo it is just the right lens for cityscapes and such.

    I took this one using a 24mm 2.8 with my OM4Ti
