E30 and OM 50mm f1.4

This was taken at the weekend with the OM 50mm f1.4 lens. I have owned the lens for some 20 odd years and decided to try it on the E30. I am well pleased.

Re: E30 and OM 50mm f1.4

Yes I'm very pleased with the one I bought a couple of months ago for under 60. This was taken at 1250 ISO using a Pen E-P2 using the 50 1.4 @1.4; it's about a 50% crop:



This was at least a stop under-exposed, which explains why some areas are a bit grainy.

I quite agree, tempting to look for one when I have some to spare. Need to factor in some OM-E System adaptor too. Best with AF chip or just stick with manual with focus to infinity?
