i think i know now why i like my zuiko 50/1.8 so much: it renders like an elmar 50/2.8 i had 30-plus years ago, but with a little more speed.

Nice shot ... I was a big fan of Bruce in that era, and I just picked up a OM1 with 100/2.8 combo from FrankS on the B&S

Paul: All my Kodachromes seem to have withstood the test of time despite, shall we say "uneven" storage conditions.

Also, I really like your observation about the 50/1.8 ... not having had an Elmar, I wouldn't have noticed that, but I think you are onto something. Different optical formulas, but I think the looks are similar. My favourite normal is the Rollei Tessar 40/2.8, which I think epitomizes that look.

CVickery: Seek out a Cockburn concert and shoot with that rig! FrankS is a good friend of mine, so I'm glad you two connected. I've seen Bruce three times, all in different decades; the last time was in Brampton.

Jules: I'm not sure. I never shot with much other than Kodachrome, Ektachrome and Agfachrome; the Fuji stuff never did much for me, except for Astia, which is different from Kodachrome.

Thanks, everyone ... one more Kodachrome/OM shot below ...

if you don't have a 50/3.5 macro I highly suggest you purchase one.

it is very rare for a person as picky and fickle as me to find something I can say is unequivocally amazing. I treat this lens like it only works at f5.6 and am NEVER disappointed by the results.

this is one of a handful of OM lenses that I have bought myself, rather than having been gifted. but this would be the last to go.

I'm going to develop a roll of the same film I used my ZM50 on. I will update the thread with my thoughts. I have mentally prepared myself to accept that the Zuiko may be a superior lens, both technically and stylistically. We shall see. I now have my own scanner, I haven't seen much of the Planar on t-grained film, so this is only a guess (fear). Until then, here are my two favorite shots from the roll:


Untitled by redisburning, on Flickr

Untitled by redisburning, on Flickr

my only complaint is that I still cannot focus an SLR with the same accuracy as a RF, and these shots were the result of me taking a very, very long time on each shot.

oh, and excellent shots everyone! I love to see Kodachrome. Unfortunately I missed the boat on that one; I started taking photographs very shortly after Dwayne's discontinued processing.

I have been given two 50/3.5s, sold one to Gene W. I will confess I haven't used it much, but I should. The person who gave them to me used the 50/3.5 a lot. I promise I'll do better!

well a promise is a promise.

I can say at this point that my Scan Dual 3 does not have a high enough resolution to tell which lens has more resolution in lp/mm.

But, I think this speaks fairly highly to the little Zuiko. It is more than capable of making razor sharp negatives.

So, the ZM Planar offers you 2 more usable stops (2.8 and 4; the Zuiko IMO should be shot only at f5.6 unless you need the extra depth of field that f8 offers) and it's emergency aperture is about 3 stops faster. It also can be bought new (for a reasonable price in the realm of new lenses, I might add), is an M mount lens and offers more modern coatings.

The Zuiko is much, much less expensive and focuses very close.

Now to the more subjective things. The Zuiko has a different kind of rendering than any other lens I've ever owned. Where I think it excels the most is when you capture the ground and see the picture drift into and then out of the plane of best focus. example here:


Untitled by redisburning, on Flickr

the ZM is more of a general purpose lens IMO, and there it cannot be faulted. I had originally mistook the Zuiko's special look, which I like but understand others may not, as being some sign of general quality. Rather than that, it is a unique little gem. And for the 135 dollars I paid for an EX+ condition copy from KEH, I would RUN to get one just to have it in your bag when what it does is exactly what you want.

here is the closest picture I got on the roll to what I had done with the Zuiko. you tell me which you like better:

Hi,

Thanks for posting these results here - the Zuiko 50/3.5 is a fine lens indeed.

Without possessing any equipment to differentiate between the resolution of these two fine 50mm lenses, I find it a bit odd (arrogant?) for you to assert that the f/2.0 aperture of the ZM Planar, one of the finest lenses created, is an "emergency" aperture. On what do you base this?

You should learn to optically print your negatives - not only will this bring you great joy compared to scanning, you might then more accurately be able to make statements about lens performance, without all the troubles caused by scanning (which range from focus issues, uneven performance over scanner image field, massive exaggeration of film grain due to aliasing, etc).

Of course, you may just find (as most others have) that apart from minor character differences, just about all 50mm lenses have the same perfect performance at moderate apertures, and stop worrying about it :-) Other things, such as style of camera + focusing accuracy, and utility (close-focusing) make a much bigger difference.

Enjoy!

I have in the past optically printed when I was still enrolled at a university. I currently own an enlarger, I just don't have the lenses for it.

the reason I say f2 is an emergency aperture is that I live in Texas where even with 100 speed film I can shoot at any aperture I want and still get easily hand-holdable shutter speeds. Since f4 is better than f2, I don't see much of a reason to shoot at f2. It's just like the Zuiko at 3.5. It's not bad. It's not the same as a first generation f1.2 at max aperture, so maybe emergency is too strong a word for it.

and I have actually paid for higher res scans with the Planar and shots at f2 were just fine (in fact, they were the best pictures I took that trip) but honestly if I could have stopped down I would have liked too. I just like 50s at mid apertures the best. I would share them, but theyre pictures of my family and I have reservations about doing so.

Ah, well, I just wanted to clear that up - f/2.0 on the Zuiko 21mm f/2.0, for example, is an "emergency aperture" because it's plagued with severe optical aberrations at that aperture. The ZM planar is nearly optically perfect at every aperture, so a different word is indeed in order

Jared, I have spent quite some time on your site. You have an immensely unique (and sometimes disturbing!) vision, such an eclectic mixture of finely-planned "installations" and what appear to be random snapshots - which obviously still have some thought behind them.

Do you use OMs for most of your work on your site?

Thank you

I use a lot of different cameras
Contax G and Olympus OM for my film needs.
Some Hassy but I do not own one myself.
5DmkII with Leica R and the OM Zuiko's and some m42 takumar (50mm f4 macro and the 50mm 1.4). I used OM lenses on the 5D2 all the time before I got the Leica R.
I love OM lenses but I love the Leica's more. And I really love that Takumar Macro!



OM1 - OM 55 1.2 ( it has a fungus infestation now )

I got my hands on a nice OM-1 that had alkaline battery coversion done and was recently CLA'd. Also included a 50/1.8 and 28/3.5 for a total of $160. I was pretty happy with this kit at that price.

Just ran my first roll through it yesterday and developed it last night. Arista Premium 400/Rodinal 1+100, 60 mins stand.

Loving the results thus far...

I thought I'd better drop by and mention that I just bought an OM-3.

I wasn't going to get any more OM gear but when I saw that black OM-3 in the classifieds tonight I was a gonner!

Now for the wait!!!!!!

I'll probably sell the OM-4 I got off Frank and one of my OM-2s because this now totals five OM bodies ... curse the classifieds! It's funny because I've had no thoughts of getting an OM-3 but had just got home and checked the classifieds like you do and spotted it and thought ... "oh my god that's nice!"

As svelt as are the OM2 & OM1, the function of the OM4 wins out for me. The meter is still state of the art, something not available on any DSLR. It is one thing to chimp after the fact, quite another thing to sample with a spot meter a few diifferent zones and have a correct average based on what I desire and not an algorithm set at the factory.

Not so ... the OM-3 like the OM-1 is a completely mechanical camera with no AE. Like the OM-1 it has no battery dependency aside from the meter.

Of course I would love an OM-3 but for less than $5 I can convert an OM-1 to use a 1.5v battery and that is significantly less than an OM-3!

But most of the OM-3's I have ever seen are in mint condition and just beautiful to look at.

It's a nice camera the OM3. Glad to see you finally got one. Mine was my first real camera given to me about 15 years ago by my now deceased grandfather. It probably isn't that much better than the OM1 but mine is special because of the memories.

Conrgrats Keith. I've been resisting a particular OM3 for about 2 months, and thinking what zuiko glass it would mean instead!

Enjoy your new one. Interested to hear your impressions.

It's funny how this OM thing goes ... you start of with a beater OM-2 because you've read constantly on RFF that these things are god's gift to SLR's and are in fact actually carrying the status of 'honourary rangefinder' at a rangefinder dedicated forum.

Before you know it ... you've got a cupboard full of OM gear and have just bought the one OM body you swore to yourself you'd never own because it's ridiculously over priced!

I'm waiting for an OM2n to arrive in the mail. I tried an EOS5 with my Canon lenses I use for digital, and I just find it too automated and too plastic. However, I did

Haha, so true. I bought an old OM1n, had it serviced, got a 50/1.4 and 28/3.5 for it, and can't imagine using any other SLR now.
