Summary: This is a great prime lens for a camera that accepts FD mount lenses. 24mm works great for indoor and group photos as well as fun handheld self ports. ƒ2.8 is fast enough to take decent shots in lower light.
Summary: Nice bright 28mm wide angle lens. I have not tested it on a 35mm OM camera but rather an Olympus E-410 digital SLR that has a 2x crop factor. This crop factor made this the equivalent of a 56mm lens. On my DSLR this Vivitar is a nice "normal" lens with a very usable field of view, high contrast, and sharp optics. Very close focus, almost macro range. Wide depth of field when stopped down allowing many subjects to be in focus.
Summary: Living in a small town with old victorian era buildings requires a wide angle lens to caputure the painted ladies beauty. Married to an set of OM bodies, this lens has given us just what we needed and a reasonable price. Building up a set of stock photos for future publication, this lens lives on an OM-1 most of the time and was great for our fireworks show as well. Black Rhino Publishing is very happy with this purchase and we would do business again with this merchant.
