"My name is Sam, and I am a Zuikoholic" :-)

Classic 35mm camera with a sweet little lens! The 40mm f/2 Zuiko
is a gem that has become quite rare and expensive on the used market.
Apparently, it was a favorite of photographer Sally Mann. Thankfully,
I got mine a few years back, in a bag full of Olympus OM gear and all
for $175 bucks! :-)

Tip: Although the 40mm f/2 Zuiko is a sweet little lens, I do not think
it is worth the prices it is commanding at the current time. If you can't
find one for under $500, don't bother. My advice: Save your money.

Olympus OM-1 ,40mm f/2 Zuiko,Fujifilm Neopan 1600
Self-Developed in HC-110, Dilution B full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

You are ahead of the power curve, the old manual focus lenses are going way up! Great SP.

Fantastic sp. Love the act of focusing, a dying technique, I believe. Great lighting. v
