    This doesn't give a particular impression of what the lens is capable of, admittedly.. but it is the one I used for the shot, and the thread was looking a bit short.

    8153530138_4fbdb47d54_b.

    With EPL3. Some plant (buddleia, maybe) through smoke then ColourEfex.

    Here's a photo with an OMD EM5 and the Oly 135mm f3.5 adapted. About f 5.6 at 1/50th of a second hand held. Nice lens!

    135 f3.5 with zuiko 2X-A teleconverter

    I'm tired of fighting auto focus on the 4/3 70-300 when I photography birds, insects, etc, and I find the focus by wire on it too difficult. So I sold it. To take its place I decided to try the OM Zuiko 135 3.5 with the 2X-A converter, designed specifically for this an a couple of other lenses, including the 200mm f4. At f7 on the long end, it is not fast, but it produces a 540mm equivilent FOV on 4/3, and the native m4/3 70-300 is 6.7 at the long end. With high iso performance on the E-M5 as good as it is, I'm not worried about maybe having to shoot f5.6 (letting in 2 stops less light) and iso 800. Some quick tests in my living room tonight, with the little flash that came with the em-5, and using 1250 iso, convinced me the combination of the lens with adapter is plenty sharp enough. I used my normal sharpening routines on the images below -- an initial test of lens & adapter because it was too dark to go birding. All shot at 1250 f5.6 with the 135 f3.5 and X2-A adapter, on a Fotodiox OM-m4/3 adapter.

    Yes, I fell in love with it 30 years ago or more, and still am very fond of it.

    On an E-M5 yesterday. I find that the images need quite a bit of contrast adjustment--they're often pretty flat.
