Shooting with a £5 lens

February 16, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I love my new Olympus. worked great on latest trip to Azores ( gallery soon ) and the images I took were top quality. And to be able to carry all the lenses needed in one small bag ? Priceless.

When I have bought this camera on ebay it came with an adapter allowing the use of old Olympus lenses, the OM system lenses. So back home I decided to give it a try. I bought old, second hand TOKINA SZ-X 60 - 300 ( 35mm equivqalent of 120 - 600 ) 1:4-5,6 for a whopping £5 and took it on a walk to the park. 

Here is the lens :

And here are the pictures taken with it : ( I have NOT adjusted a thing - this is how they came out straight from the camera )
 

 FIVE! pounds. Honestly ? BARGAIN.

Yes, there are disadvantages - no autofocus, smallest aperture f4, but hell, for a fiver ? I am rushing back to ebay - more old lenses await...
