This additional commentary has been very helpful. I have never been one to focus on (pun intended) one person's commentary, KR's or otherwise. It is reassuring, though, when one provides a detailed explation of one's findings, as RidingWaves has done.
I have owned the Canon lenses mentioned above...and I still own the Zuiko 100/2.8. All are very nice. If it were not for the problems I had with keeping the F-1N from malfunctioning in winter (this happened with more than one body), I would have kept my Canon gear. The Zuiko 100/2.8 seems to me to be the best of the bunch, though my first batch of results with the 105/2.5 AI has been quite impressive--dead-sharp real. I am not that impressed with my OM2n body, though. There is nothing terribly wrong with it, but I do not like the shallow (and thus impossible to use) tripod socket on the Winder 2, and the rather weak connection between the body and the Winder 2. My Nikons feel much more solid. Likwise, the Canons I had were very solid.
