Tamron 35-70mm f3.5 macro testing with my Olympus OM2n and some HP5……..

OM2n-HP5022-EditThe other week I came across an Olympus OM10 in a local car boot sale. As I already have my original OM10 I didn’t really need another but it did have a nice looking Tamron 35-70mm zoom with it and a Manual adapter so I asked the seller if he would sell me them as I didn’t need the camera and he agreed to £10 which was a bargain and after paying he said I may as well take the camera for free as he has had no interest so double win.OM2n-HP5007Today was the 1st time using it on my OM2n and it worked great, 35-70 is a very handy focal length spread and f3.5 throughout was also useful.OM2n-HP5006It’s not the sharpest lens ever in fact its a little soft until you get to f8 but to be honest I really don’t mind as as a walk around lens its far more useful than being stuck with my 50mm.OM2n-HP5021 OM2n-HP5019 OM2n-HP5018 OM2n-HP5012-Edit OM2n-HP5002All in all for £10 I am well pleased and this lens will be permanently on my OM2n.

Thanks for looking………
