In anticipation of my OM-1n I went to Goodwill to see if I could find any good buys.
I found an Olympus MC 50mm f/1.8 marked "JAPAN" on the front. Only problem is on the element closest to the lens mount there's a hairline crack. Will this affect pictures? Picked up for $5.99. Still has the inspection sticker on it.
Also found an Olympus 35mm f/2.8 (also marked JAPAN if that matters). This one looks flawless. Not a dent or scratch on the thing. $3.99.
Also found a Vivitar 28mm f/2.0. Glass is good, though metal on mount is scratched. Rest looks excellent. I don't even know if this was OM mount. Front says vivitar and focal length and "AUTO WIDE-ANGLE". Near mount it says O/OM on barrel. Is this an OM lens? $6.99. Worth the price?
Pretty happy with the 35mm, not sure if I did well on the other two. Did I waste my money? They had some others that looked cheap for other systems but these were the ones that looked the best quality.

Reason: Oops, Vivitar is 28mm, I mistyped 25
