OM Lenses

Old School meets New School. Vintage Lenses on the OMD.

A few weeks back I purchased a vintage Olympus OM 2N with 4 lenses on eBay. The purchase while sort of sentimental in nature, did have a couple of real world purposes. I wanted those vintage manual lenses to mount on my Olympus OMD EM-5. Using a Bower adapter, I did just that and the early results show promise. Taking some test shots with the 28mm f 3.5, the 50mm f 1.8, and the 35 to 70mm f 4.0 lenses over the last couple of days have turned out some OK results. Shooting in full manual mode all three lenses produced sharp, bright images with a creamy bokeh and when wide open a shallow depth of field that looks really nice. As I use these vintage lenses more, I’ll post more images and a more thorough review of the Bower adapter and any tips about shooting with these older lenses.
