Interesting lens conversion, where is Roland?

Whether on an OM camera or an M mount camera, it still is a great lens.

Very interesting !

My favorite 50 on film.

I was going back and forth on having mine converted by MiyasakiSan, already had a quote for it. But it's an irreversible conversion (different from your eBay post), and I hated the idea of making my lens unusable on my om1.

So I bought a nokton 1.1 instead and am happy - the results look strikingly similar.

Thanks for posting !

Roland.

Funny, I was thinking the same thing. That a super fast newish 50 mm lens at a good deal of a price for an M camera would be the Nokton f1.1 and the fast Zuiko 50mm should be left unmolested to fit the fine OM cameras. It is an interesting conversion none the less.
