The Olympus OM-System Zuiko Auto-Zoom 65-200mm f/4 is a rear but sought after lens, made from the mid-1980s up to the early 1990s.

I bought this lens for a conversion project and to be used on my D5200. However, the mount replacement part that arrived (it took 2 months!) was not compatible so I decided to abort the project. The lens had a bad case of haze, and it was known for this issue. As usual, my #SecretTechnique that took me a year to master worked to make it clean.

When I opened this lens, the first thing that impressed me was the craftsmanship. Unlike many others which skimmed a few things here and there, this lens had a baffer (velvet lining) to reduce internal reflections, plus many other quality work inside the lens that you would never notice from the outside. For its zoom range, the lens is also close focusing at 1.2 meters (where most were at 2 meters!).

Anyway, the samples I shot shows the effect of the fungus. It glows at f/4, then greatly improves by f/5.6. Super sharp by f/8.
