    Yeah, nothing from them yet.

    Maybe they are waiting for the shipment of the OM adapters to come in first before they reply to us.

    I just thought that putting everyone's email in the TO field in the email is kinda silly in these kind of emails. Now everyone knows everyone's email addy.

    yeah... just collected my OM adaptor just now.

    better still, I missed out on the registration. called this guy recommended by a staff in Olympus and get to get it all the same.

    Tried out my OM 50mm MC lens on my E-300... preliminary results quite promising, think it will make a great portraiture lens.

    Hi, I am using an Olympus OM 50mm f1.8 MC lens with my E-300. Yes, same lens as what KH was sellig.

    My setup looks exactly as described in this article. Read it for more information on how things work.

    Basically, by setting to aperture mode, one can take reasonably well exposed images with a good OM lens that is stopped down by one notch. In a way, I think the E-1/E-300 can meter through a manual lens. I could be wrong though but so far images turn out fine, just that WB needs to be customised for best results.

    The bokeh you get is beautiful, very narrow depth of field but that is the whole point of using these very well constructed pieces of glass. As a result, the images taken can look very 3-dimensional, very characteristics of these classic lenses.


    By the way, anyone who didn't register but wanna collect your OM adaptor, you can PM me for the relevant contacts, Olympus Singapore has more than enough to give out. Less than 20 people were on the current list to collect the OM adaptor which is a waste. Just make sure you have an Olympus OM lens as the serial no. is needed together with the warranty card during verification. Pretty lame, but well, I am not complaining since it is free and given out of goodwill.

    Took a few test shots with the OM 50mm f1.8 and E-300 combo just now, this is one of them:



    Custom WB
    Aperture: f5.6
    ISO: 400
    Shutter: 1/20 handheld

    The very thin DOF, even at f5.6 is just great for me... can try out more creative shots.

    Also, I can confirm that the E-300 indeed can meter through the lens.

    so you also gian huh? heehehee

    really quite fun to shoot with a manual lens... quite challenging but when you get it right, the images turn out very 'analogue', if you know what I mean. really back to the days when I shoot with my Nikon FE2 with its 28mm and 50mm primes.

    well, you can continue to search in the B&S here, saw another guy selling a 135mm OM lens just yesterday. also can check out the 2nd hand shops at peninsular and adelphi.
