  • 80-100mm wise??

    My collection of legacy glass is now growing and AF lenses are very rarely out now...I just got the 24mm f/2.8 and i love it along with my 50mm 1.8 (mij) on the 510 and e-30.
    Now you guys come in!! I am looking for a fixed prime in the 80-105mm range and dont want to spend much more than 200 really....i really like the look of the Zuiko 85mm f/2 but i was wondering what other lenses fell into a similar price bracket within those focal lengths and with the quality of the 85mm f/2...........hope you can help,kind regards

    What about Samyang 85/1.4 (used)? It is available in 4/3 mount as well and you can get it under 200 pounds, if you'll be lucky..

      My collection includes the Samyang 85mm f/1.4 and Tamron 90mm f/2.5. For something a bit longer I like the Tamron 135mm f/2.5 over the OM 135mm lenses.

      The Samyang and 135mm Tamron are my choice. The Tamron 90mm macro gets used with the EC14 for more working distance most of the time.
      It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.
