Hey guys,

I'm looking for any advice on what 85mm lens is best for my Olympus OM-10. From my research I can only see that there are adapters for Olympus lenses on other bodies.

What other lenses can people recommend other than the Zuiko 85mm f2? (As I find these hard to come by).

Are there other suitable lenses for olympus bodies?

Cheers for any help.

I guess it depends on what you want it for. If you want the 85mm FOV of a full frame camera, the 42 should be fine. I think they make quite a good 42/1.8 which will give you a similar FOV that the 85 on a FF camera.

I'm assuming @coleclough27 is talking about the Olympus OM-10, which is a 35-mm film camera?

Otherwise, if talking about the digital EM-10, I can give some lens recommendations.

Yes I'm talking about the OM-10 35mm film camera.

I'm looking for a suitable portrait lens for it.

I'm wondering if you could find any of the following: 85 mm, 90 mm f/2 (it looks to be a macro lens), or the 135 mm f/2.8. I couldn't help you with IQ. I think there's also an 85 f/2.8? Not sure?

While the below links are people that have adapted the lenses for their micro four-thirds cameras, they may give you some hint to the quality of the lenses:

Also look around on that site for other OM lenses in the Adapted Lens Sample Image Showcase.
