    No, nothing fancy like the Canon's 28-70mm f2.8, or the Nikon equivalent, not even the Olympus 14-35mm f2.0. It's just a little humble £30inc 50mm f1.8 from the Olympus OM Legacy...

    With an OM-4/3 Adaptor, this lens works fine full manual on my E620. Feels retro and makes a perfect portrait lens on the 4/3 body (100mm equiv.)

    The lens is soft at f1.8, sweet spot is between f2.8 and 5.6. f8.0 and beyond, slight diffraction is noticed. However, the main purpose I got this lens apart from portrait, MACRO with extension tube!

    This is the closest focus for the 50mm (handheld, apologise for the rather poor focus)

    This is straight out, LR2 converted RAW->DNG->JPEG with 'low sharpening' on output.

    Now it's time to play!

    Love it. In fact I think I still have one of these.
