Fresh newbie!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi there all of you OM fans!

    My name is George, from Sofia, Bulgaria and I am an OM addicted.

    So how to start. It started with an innocent OM 10 purchase with a Makinon 28/2.8 and manual adapter. Back then I only thought "lets try, I can always quit, just a shot to see how it is".

    A film another film and ......... now I'm fully into it. Totally addicted guy with an OM problem. I have two OM10 both totally equipped.
    My OM Orgy is like this 2 X Zuiko 50/1.8, one Zuiko 50/1.4 (silver nose but quite good), Makinon 28/2.8 (great cheap lens), Cimko MT 28/2.4 (unknown but good piece of glass with impressive colors), Sigma 24/2.8 (needs a little repair), Hoya 135/2.8 (cheap and just great portrait lens) and a Vivitar 80-210/4.5-5.6 (not the series 1 but quite good), an Ensinor X2 convertor....
    here it is how its look like.


    The excess is that I just bought an OM2n ... tell when this will stop!!!!
    Regards to all

    George, welcome.

    Effectively, there is no end to the disorder. Wait till you really experience the joys of that OM-2n. Then you'll be getting an OM-4Ti, an OM-1, and a bunch of other cameras in duplicate. Of course, the Holy Grail is the OM-3Ti, but let's get you started with the attainable stuff first.

    Of the lenses, there are a couple of tiers of lenses. As a general rule, the F2 lenses are the top quality stuff, but that's kinda irrelevant as the "normal" lenses are almost always quite excellent.

    Hi George,

    I also have a 50mm 1:1.4 Silvernose Zuiko mounted on my OM-4T and I have been using this combination with Kodak Tri-X lately. I really like the 50/55mm focal length standard lenses and use them over 90% of the time. Enjoy you Olympus gear.

    Welcome George,

    I also suffered of "Zuikoholism" in the earlier days, but somehow, I got ridden of most of it.
    Got a 28 f3.5; 50 f1.8 MiJ and 135 f3.5 triplet. Does everything I want to. Sometimes I miss a wider aperture when using slower film, specially on the 28 and 135mm. I always end returning to the 50mm.
