    What moderate wide-angle lens for Olympus OM?

    Does anyone have a preference on Olympus lenses in the 28-35mm range?
    Are there any 40mm OM lenses?

    There was one: the 40mm f/2.0.

    KEH currently has a few but they are not inexpensive.

    I would have to vote for the 28mm f/2.0!

    I have a 28 3.5 which is nice (if you don't need anything faster) and they're dirt cheap!!

    good luck

    35mm f/2.0!

    My favourite lens (well, the 85mm f/2.0 is very close).

    Sometimes the brighter lenses aren't necessarily sharper..
    What of the 28mm f2 and 35mm f2 as opposed to the slower versions?

    I have the 28/2.8, and it's my absolute favorite.

    Oh, and for MUCH less than a new lens, you could pick up an Olympus Trip 35, with a 40/2.8 Zuiko lens .

    I've never owned the slower version of the 35mm. In fact, I own two of them, because I consider it to be my standard lens.

    I find it to be very sharp, and of moderate contrast.

    The f/2.0 aperture makes it very easy to focus.

    The only minor downside, as far as I'm concerned, is that it is somewhat large for an Olympus lens (about the same as my 50mm f/1.4), and it takes 55mm filters

    Here is an example shot from my APUG gallery:

    Here are three options. The 35 F2.8, the 35 Shift and the 35-80 f2.8 zoom:



    I love the 35 F2.8 lens and it along with my 100 F2.8 are my dying grasp lenses. I personally consider the 35mm focal length to be my "normal" focal length.

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

    I rather like the 35mm shift lens myself.
