Olympus OM 24mm f/3.5 shift lens

introduction

  • the first Perspective Control lens type that broke the 24mm barrier in 35mm SLR photography (1984).
  • due to its protruding and the extra large front element, the lens was designed with a built-in protective scallop hood to protect the front ED glass lens element.
  • an internal revolving filter turret supplies filters where a Neutral Density, Y48, O56, R60 are provided.
  • a beautiful lens that many architectural photographers bought and converted to Nikon mounts. It is reportedly much sharper than the Canon version, and once converted, will work in stop-down metering mode just like Nikon's PC lenses.
