    Re: Photo Sample Request

    I haven't tried OM glass on mine but have used Yashica and Pentax both. At the time I had the 510 with it's smaller VF. I never had any issues focusing but have read some do due to the lack of a focusing screen.
    At one time I had a lens I was passing between members but has gotten lost in it's travels. You can check this Flickr group for examples.

    Found this too. Yashica shots.

    Re: Photo Sample Request

    I have a 50mm F1.8 OM lens that I use regularly. It is manual focus so I find it more fun to use and the stuff that comes out of the lens is great when my focus is right lol. Unfortunately this image has been converted to JPEG and I had to pull it off Facebook where it has further been compressed but you can still see the clarity of the shot and the quality of the bokeh it produces regardless of the over compression softness to it. The original is razor sharp but on my laptop which is packed for a shoot this afternoon. This shot was at ISO 100 , F 1.8, and about 1/1500 Shutter if I recall correctly.

    Re: Photo Sample Request

    i have only one shot i've posted but plan to take more. i switched out the focusing screen in my e1 and replaced it with a split screen just for my manual focus lenses, of which i have 3, the 50mm being one of them. will come back and post more as i take them.
    Happily photographing within my camera's limitations.Website
