So what are they key OM lenses to look for? Just curious.

Well, I would say 50/1.2 or the older 55/1.2 (which I enjoy using).
If they are too costly, the 50/1.4 or the 50/1.8 are easy to obtain via ebay.

The 85/2, 90/2 and 100/2 lenses are very special lenses, which I hope to own one day!

I have currently the 24 2.8, 50 1.4 and 135 2.8. With the speed booster they would become (on m43 if I have the math right):

34 f2, 71 f1 and 192 f2.

This makes me want to go get another 85f2, which would be 120 f1.4.

The OM 50f2 macro is right up there with the Zeiss 50MP and usually goes used for under $500, certainly a gem of the system.

I too have the 24/2.8 & 135/2.8!
But yes, I really want the 85/2.0..

Wow, finally. That would rock my world, for sure. 50f1.4, 90f2 macro and 135f3.5, all gorgeous om´s in my current set. Would love to use more of that glass in my pics! Only using what, a quarter of the glass today?
