Olympus OMD EM5 with Exakta lens

Postby rumtea » Thu Jun 25, 2015 1:10 am

It was a very good experience shooting manual lens. I had great time! But next time I have to remember to bring a tripod. I used the Carl Zeiss Jena which came with my Exakta Varex VX and the ISO-Gottingen which came with the Exa II

Hi, very interesting!
I also happen to have bought a CZJ Flektogon 35mm F/2.8 for my Olympus EM5, together with an Exakta/m43 adapter. The very short minimum focusing distance makes this a wonderful lens for near-macro shots. I had hoped to use that lens on my Topcon Super DM camera as well, but sadly the ridge around the bayonet mount of the camera prevents the lens from mounting (although it has the same Exakta/Topcon bayonet mount as the body).

It must be fun to be able to try those manual lens on our digital camera :-).

Indeed it is. I have several adapters for my Olympus OMD by now : M42 to micro43, Nikon to m43 and Exakta/Topcon to m43.
I admit that I haven't used all of this very much yet, but I'm planning to ;-)
