    I picked up a cheap Olympus OM 3.5 135mm lens last week (my very first ever adapted lens), and went out today with my X-E1 for a little walk to see if I could get any decent pictures out of it. First impressions are that the manual focussing take a little getting used to, especially with any non stationary objects (I also took some pictures of animals today) it is quite difficult, but that may just be lack of practice. I foscussed these wise open and then usually closed the aperture 1 stop for the final picture. I added a little PP sharpening to them as they were a little soft, but I think they turned out usable. I am not a frequent tele user so I guess this wil do untill at some point in the future hopefully we will get some more options from Fuji.
