I picked up at an auction, a lot with an E.Zuiko-T 8cm f5.6 lens in it. At first thought it was for a Pen but now I am not sure. It has a bayonet mount that goes around the rear element, about 3/4" and a plastic adapter ring that mounts to it. It has a chrome barrel and black focus and aperture ring. Im not an Olympus fan and just don't know what it goes to any ideas.

It's for the Olympus Ace, i think.

Thanks I think your right, the mount looks the same. I have never heard of an Ace before, but now I will be on the lookout.

This is such a nice little lens I wish it would mount on my Leica M6.

see also the ACE E or Sears Tower 19 (its the same camera).

It uses the same lenses (35mm f2.8, 45mm f2.8 & 80mm f5.6) than the ACE camera but it has a built-in selenium meter. I love both cameras :). Get one of them, or both, they are cheap but there aren't many out there

I would love to stumble across such a lens. I own an Ace, but have no usable lenses.

I was after the lens, but I never thougt I would found one and at a fair price. After 4 years of looking everyday on ebay (one seen one full of fungus and scratches and sold for almost 200 dollars! ). I bought it outside ebay and with the help of a stranger after he saw my Collection. How lucky I was! Never saw another one after that....
