    Favourite OM Lens

    Hi....Just wondering what your favourite OM lens is? Ive got a telephoto lens which to be honest I just dont use. Ive olso got a 28mm wide angle and the standard 50 something lens you get with it. I like the wide angle but more often than not I just use the 50 something lens. What do people use telephoto lenses for? Wildlife/sport....is that it?

    Ideally I'd like something like a 40 - 90 lens....do they exist?

    Hi pants - my favorite is a Zuiko 80mm f4 macro that was made to fit the auto bellows. I can get 4:1 and I love it. Getting ready to go use it again in a few minutes. I am obsessed with that 1/2" DOF. CHEERS.

    Zuiko lenses are excelent glass. I have a 100mm f/2.8 that I use for portraits. Sometimes I carry a 135mm f/3.5 for medium range on the street. I like my Auto-Macro 50mm f/3.5. I have a 200mm that I use for portraits and wildlife. The 50mm f/1.4 ande the 28mm f/3.5 are standard. Other times I carry a 35-105mm zoom with 'Close Focus' for contingencies.

    Gosh - this is what happens when you have stuff in cupboards you haven't used in a year and then forget you have it. Thanks for reminding me, now I have an excuse to go run off to the woods... ha ha. This is one of the coolest toys I have: a Vivitar 70-210mm f2.8 macro zoom. This baby is sweet.

    I promise to stop now....... :-))

    I have two favourite children .

    Some days it is the Zuiko 85mm f/2.0. Other days it is the Zuiko 35mm f/2.0.

    Probably it is the 35mm f/2.0, but it is close.

    Zooms just don't seem to work with the OM ... I am trying to bet back into carrying a camera every day, and of late I have been grabbing my OM2n with a 35mm f2.8 ... light, no fuss and will never let you down ... if I has to be a zoom (usually when travelling) I go with the 35-80mm Tamron SP - not zuiko, but I like it ...

    Because I use my OM4Ti with HIE film my favourite lens has to be the 24 mm lens, I set it for the hyperfocal distance and just shoot away, I should add that I select f16 and let the spot meter do the rest for me.

    Cheers

    two way tie between the Zuiko 28 f3.5 and the 50 f1.4.

    I use my 50/1.4 (the last version, serial over 1,100,000) the most and it is incredibly sharp. My favorite zuiko is probably the 40mm f2 pancake.
