I'm impressed. My experience with the 50/1.8 was not so good.

The Fotasy OM to E Mount that Moose recommended seems to hold the OM lens 
pretty securely. And is relatively cheap. The OM adapters really stick the OM 
lenses out there. The OM 50/1.8 with OM adapter is about the same length as the 
Zeiss 55/1.8. 

I have been using the Sonie 90mm macro and I really like the handling. With the 
90 macro E mount, I can auto focus and quickly switch to manual by pushing the 
focus ring forward, or pull back for auto focus. Yes expensive, but I remember 
how much cranking the OM 90mm macro focus took. E 90 handles well.

No longer looking back - WayneS
