Yeah, I'll pop it on the GF1 and see what i get. Should be good as the lens is spotless!

I will also get some B&W film and run it through just to see what it's like but I'm just chuffed about the lens really!:thumbup:

Brings back memories...

I got my first OM-1 in 1975. Dropped in 2000' in Chamonix. Got another. Sold that and bought an OM-2s sometime in the 80's. Absolutely great stuff!

Eventually sold the OM-2, a 50mm f1.2, bracket and flash when the Canon G9 came out. I wish I still had the 50mm!

The flash is compact and great. You can still use it in Manual/Auto using wireless remotes. :thumbup:

Ah, that brings back memories. I used to own both an OM1 and OM2, plus the 75-150mm zoom. Here's a pic (taken a long, long time ago) with the 75-150mm on my OM1, using Kodachrome 64 film. :smile:

That's a real bargain you have there - I'd have been tempted, just for old time's sake. But boy, do I wish we had micro 4/3 in those days - I may not have crippled my knees carying too much weight up big hills (I used to carry Medium Format as well).
