Default looking for help with OM 50mm 1.8 on E520

Hi Everyone,

I am new and this is my first post. I am a beginner.

I recently acquired an OM 50mm F1.8 lens and adapter and was experimenting with my Olympus E520. I used AP mode and manual focus: I use the screen with 7x magnification to focus. I discovered my pictures being very grainy at ISO400 in door and even at ISO 100 outdoor. I tried F1.8 to F8.0 but things were not improving.

Here are a couple examples.



Please advise me what I might have done wrong.
