On my two OM-2ns, I keep a 28/2 and an 85/2. Both have hoods and lens caps, but the caps don't work with the hoods, so I have to take off the lens caps and screw on the hoods in order to take pictures. This is less than good.

So off to B&H, and two Olympus lens caps found that fit on the hoods:

For the 85mm/f2 hood - a simple push fit success.

For the 28mm/f2 hood - this one took an Exacto knife to shave away some plastic but now fits nicely.

I had to wait a couple of weeks as these are not always in stock, but what's two weeks in the life of a camera that will last a few decades more?

Cool

Wasn't even planning on it, but I was at the pawnbrokers and I got a mint condition 28mm f2.8 for a steal.... Then I saw a cheap 100mm f2.8, and now I have an Om-4 en route to use them on with a 50mm f1.8.... might be time to retire the Nikon FE.

Been a member here for a while and am just discovering this thread, D'oh! My first camera was an OM-1n. After it was stolen, I added 2 OM-2's and a 4ti with a dozen lenses or so. My favorite OM moment was meeting a guy at Narita airport shooting an original M1. Anyway here's a picture.

Really great images. Giving me a hankering for an OM3 and a Zuiko.
Have had my eye on a 40/2 for the past few weeks.

p.giannakis beautiful photograph! I'm very happy with my 35mm 2.0. It isn't perfect, it's true, but I love its way to draw the reality...

I am not sure why it has bad reputation. In terms of performance it is as good as the cheapo (and well regarded) Canon EF 50 1.8

I had plenty of free time today, shot the same subject with three lenses.



Here are the results

I am about a week away from putting a roll of film through this very neglected camera which has always been my favourite by a large margin. It's been five years ... five years too long!

In the meantime I am using the Zuiko glass on my black OM-2n which I love just as much (or maybe a tiny bit more).

That's actually a Leica M case with some packing in the bottom because the Oly is actually a smaller camera. Fits well.

When I dragged this beauty out of storage I had a friend here who is a very good photographer and currently uses a Canon 5Dlll. I told her to have a look through the viewfinder which she did and I could see the amazement on her face. That finder does that to everyone when they first look through it ... even more so with the 1.2 lens on it!

I love this camera!

Yes having looked through hundreds of viewfinders, the brightness of the om1/2 still amazes me!

Yes, the om-1 has an incredible viewfinder. I love it. In a such a small bodie...

In the last days I have been using my Zuikos in an EOS-3. Here you have some examples:

(Acros @400 using a Pentacon SixTL; a bit too dark, but I like its mood nonetheless.)
