Default Legacy lens shots

Playing with manual focus today. These are from the E-620 with a OM-mount 50mm f1.8

Excellent shots! It's a bit like If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
I posted a couple of pics taken with old Minolta MD lenses attached to my new(ish) Oly E-510 --- here
I admire all users of old lenses. Why pay money in this day and age for no particular improvements?

Yes, they are great for stationary shots like flowers, buildings, etc. But, for wildlife I'm just not that fast in the manual focusing department

Agreed, it's very nice. The first two seem a bit noisy for my tastes.

Well, being of questionably sound mind i actually still buy old glass to use. There are some great bargains out there.
