    For me, the 100mm f 2.8 is the world's forgotten lenses. It is smaller & lighter than most 50's and sharp as a tack. For street work it simply cannot be beat. And they are cheap into the bargain. I think the OM line is vastly under rated, by a long shot. I know you will really enjoy your work with this fine camera & so will your viewers!

    I don't know if the "perfect" lens exists. I own 20 OM Zuiko primes. When I die, I would like to take the following lenses with me: 21mm f2, 24mm f2, 35mm f2, 55mm f1.2 and 100mm f2.

    Regards,
    Dave

    Dave:

    Best not to reveal here where you intend to be buried.

    Hope it remains just a potential problem for a very long time.

    I can dig it. And if I find out where they plant ya, I will.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I will also have the OM-3Ti placed in the coffin with me.

    Must be the reason these are so hard to find and expensive when you do . . . ;-)

    Here's another vote for the 40mm f2. It's compact and optically excellent. However it's rarity equals its price. For the brave there is one at http://www.mkoptics.net/lists.htm

    I guess that giving us the GPS co-ordinates is out of the question then?

    What makes you think that you will outlive me? You might run into some other APUG members.

    I originally bought an OM camera because many nice third party lenses sold for so little in that mount. If I carry a three lens kit I like the 35/2.8, 50/3.5 and 100/2.8 Zuikos. Of my non-Zuikos in OM mount I like the 90/2.8 Vivitar macro, 28/2 Soligor C/D, 55/2.8 Vivitar macro, 135/2.8 Vivitar Close Focusing, 28-85/2.8-3.8 Vivitar Auto Variable Focusing and 90/2.5 Tamron SP (2nd version).
