Olympus + Leica

Olympus E-PL1 with a Leica 50mm f/2 (circa mid 1930's) mounted with an M39 to Micro 4/3 adapter

Technical Notes: Olympus E-PL1 and the 80 year old German Leica 50mm f/2 Summar I took off the Russian Zorki 4.  Since the lens lacks any coating whatsoever, the flaring is way over the top when I shoot towards any light source.  It took a lot of post processing in Capture NX 2 to get the contrast right and the colors how I wanted, but it does have that Leica glow.  I think it’s good for random not so serious pictures, and the 4 to 3 aspect ratio is quite pleasing.
