Knowing that there are quite a number of old OM shooters here, consider this a 
warning. OK, past OM shooters, some may not be old. 

A video (there's your first warning) on Peta Pixel today, where a 
photographer/just average guy/fool test "vintage" 50mm lenses on a Fuji 
digital. Consider this a warning, it's twenty minutes long, and there's about 0 
minutes of usable information on it, along with some troubling conclusions, and 
a total lack of production values. There's also a strangely good thing, though. 

The , as the youngsters call it, takeaway is this: his "testing" is subjective 
to the extreme and there is no objectivity. I remain still unclear about what 
his purpose was, other than to generate clicks. He tests a couple of dozen 
fifties from many makers with good to great reputations. The final conclusion 
was the Nikkor 50/1.4 was king (really a legend) but the first runner up was 
the 50/1.8 Zuiko! He liked it but it was severely downgraded because the 
aperture ring clicks were "too loud and makes the lens sound cheap." He says 
that otherwise it would have been #1. 

I'l let you be the judge, but don't blame me if you feel foolish for watching
