Olympus PEN Zuiko lenses for Fuji: Part 3 – The 100/3.5

The PEN Zuiko 100/3.5 is the smallest and presumably also the least expensive telephoto lens of its system. It's even a bit more compact than Olympus' later OM Zuiko 135/3.5 – even more so on a modern mirrorless camera, taking the diminutive size of the PEN Zuiko adapter into account. Especially the diameter of the... Continue Reading →


Olympus PEN Zuiko lenses for Fuji: Part 2 – The 38/1.8

The 38/1.8 is the classic standard lens of the Olympus PEN system of the 1960s, the golden link between wide-angle and telephoto lenses, with a fast f/1.8 aperture and nice characterful yet still high-quality optics, all packed in a very small and lightweight package.

After I left the spot to go home, shortly before sunset, I passed s small pedestrian tunnel, and saw this spider trying to make a web at the tunnel entrance.
