CSC : Digital Compact System Cameras - This new category of digital Compact System Cameras with interchangeable lenses was mislabeled for a time as "Mirrorless Cameras" by those forgetting about "Mirrorless" Rangefinder cameras.  Such confusion is easily understandable, since interchangeable rangefinder cameras were only recently introduced in 1932.  hmm.    CSC or Compact System Camera is probably the best category description to date, although I am fond of the old RFF desigation of  CEVIL  indicating Compact Electronic Viewfidner Interchangeable Lens.   This forum is here at RFF because via adapters these cameras offer an inexpensive way to use rangefinder lenses on digital cameras -- in addition of just about every 35mm SLR lens you can think of.  All  offer the photo enthusiast an incredible array of adopted lenses which was not possible before these new digital formats.   This group continues to grow in popularity and new camera models!

OM, I've become a Zuikoholic! [in CSC cameras]

OM, I've become a Zuikoholic! [in CSC cameras]

I love Zuiko OM lenses and I used to use in my OM-1 bodies, but in the last year I don't have time to shot, develop, scan... film, so I have been using my digital systems (Fuji).

But a lot of times I was looking at my OM lenses... so, I bought an OM-Fuji X adapter. And it was sooo lovely that I began to look at another FF digital system to use my Zuikos with them. Finally, I bought a Sony A7 and an OM - Sony adapter.

I began to share my photographs in a post that I thought it was about the OM Zuikos, but it isn't in this way: the post is about OM Zuikos used in OM film bodies.

So I've thought maybe it would be interesting create a new post to share OUR Zuikos photographs, but with digital cameras.

If you want to share your Zuikoholims... come and share! :-)

Here we go:


21mm 3.5 on Fuji X-Por 1


G.Zuiko 50mm 1.4 on Sony A7

Can you share yours? :-)

Zuiko 50mm/1.8 on a Canon DSLR Either a 10D or 1100D

I recently received an Olympus OMD E-M10, but I do not have any photos with the OM lenses worth sharing yet. Soon I hope

Thanks! It makes me think of many alternatives that are available to me in my photography with the cameras and lenses that I already own. It is how you paint with digital cameras that really is interesting and rewarding.

raid, I don't understand what you want to say with "It is how you paint with digital cameras"... what do you want to say with "paint with digital cameras"?

Nice, blumoon. What focus method to you use on the G7?

I try to use focus peaking, but it always looks like the peaking shows up in multiple focal planes. And I'm not thrilled with only having white and black for peaking. On a simple enough scene, using the key line art filter can help. Mostly, I use the zoomed in view and "eyeball" it.

I use the focus peaking set on low with the blue color. That seems to work well for me.

Have since sold the EM-10 since I could not get along with the complicated menus. Have now got a Panasonic GX-85 which I love.

After a long time that I haven't had anytime to make photographs, this weekend I have taken my A7 with my Zuikos. It has been a great pleasure.

Here you have a portrait of my son. I think he is a "Sea-Boy", because he lives the Sea in a very natural way...
