My new OM to M43 adapter
A couple of days ago my OM to M43 adapter arrived from Hong Kong after a journey of many weeks. I'm still amazed when I order something from the other side of the globe for a couple of dollars, with no shipping costs, and it arrives at my house :) Here's a pic with the Olympus E-PL5 with the OM to M43 adapter and 80 - 200mm F4.5 Sigma lens and the (analogue) Olympus OM10 with the 50mm F1.8. A view test shots seemed to deliver pretty good results with the 50mm F1.8. The small E-PL5 is not easy to handle with the zoom lens attached. The next day, on a short walk with the dogs, I took some more pictures with the E-PL5 and the 50mm 1.8 OM lens. The lens is not razor sharp, but the rendering is really great. It's sharp enough and it's already one of my favorite lenses. Focusing wasn't easy at first, because the camera doesn't have focus peaking. But after I discovered this post, with a work around for focus peaking I got better results. I also tried the Sigma zoom lens, but the quality of that lens is terrible and the pictures I made with that lens are not worth sharing. Here under you'll find some pictures shot with the Olympus E-PL5 and the OM 50mm F1.8.
