    Legacy Lenses on a Canon Image Thread

    My Nikon and OM adapters arrived from the ebay seller big_is
    Today has been the first day the weather has been conducive to shooting.

    So here are some samples using a Zuiko 24/2

    Very nice -- I loved that lens back in the day when I was shooting 3rd party on my Canons!

    thanks Jack... it seems to be a versatile lens for me... great WA on the Canon and a pretty fine fast normal on my 4/3rds... I am a happy boy.

    Any other 3rd parties you liked on the Canon?

    I liked the Oly 18, but only because it was inexpensive and rendered a more classic look -- not nearly as crisp as the Oly 24/2. I borrowed and liked the Oly 50/1.2, again for it's unique look. My absolute favorites were the Oly 24/2, the Leica R 35 Lux, and the Leica R 80 Lux. I never got to try a Leica 50 Lux, but suspect it would feel the same as the 35 and 80, and if it did would make my ideal MF trio, with the Oly 24/2 rounding out a foursome. If you want a really crisp shift lens, the C/Y Zeiss 35 is awesome.

    My issue now is my aging eyes -- I really need AF for hand-held work. So the MF lenses are not for me anymore unless they're specialty, like the TSE's or a killer macro.

    thanks for that jack

    I am constantly amazed at how physically small the OM lenses are... I have a 28 , 35 a 50 and a 100... and together they are smaller than many modern zoom lenses... they are little works of engineering art

    Yes smaller than zoom lenses fortunately I use the Zuikos 21/2 and 28/2 with my 5D. Here the 28/2 and the Summicron-M 28/2. The Cron is sharper but the Zuiko is very close to the late Elmarit-R 28/2.8 and vignettes less than the latter at f/2.8.

    I think the C/Y Zeiss 35 is great.
