Took the Olympus F.Zuiko OM Auto-T 300mm f/4.5 lens out of the dry-box and mounted it on the Olympus Pen E-P5 with the OM Adapter MF-2, just to see how it feels and handles, and what will it takes to lug it around on a shoot or assignment.

On the Olympus E-P5, the lens will be an equivalent to a f/9 600mm super telephoto lens. Lined the combo up on the front porch, and grabbed a few test shots, wide open, of my immediate environment.

The test images here were shot in *.orf RAW, uploaded to Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) for post-processing, and went through my normal workflow routine of edits with Brightness & Control, Gamma, and Unsharp Mask.

Except for the use of Pop Art art filter effect in RAW Development Mode on the square formatted shots, no other development mode features were used. Probably best planned for sunsets, mountain photography, sports, or animals in the woods, the Zuiko OM is said to be a fine lens, tack sharp through the aperture range with little or no diffraction, and good contrast and saturation with the colors.

On the side of me being an ardent user of Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3), the last image, being slightly overcast and moody, went through the RAW Development Mode with Key Line art filter effect. Just a bit of the creative mind working overtime here.
