Manual Olympus SLR Camera Lenses
Take professional standard photographs using personalised manual focus options with manual Olympus SLR camera lenses. A manual focus lens is a lens that requires you to focus by hand, rather than using modern autofocus technology. Prior to autofocus all lenses were manual, so the term will include all retro and classic Olympus lenses.
Why shoot with a manual focus lens?
Although autofocus lens photography is immensely convenient is does have its downsides. From a purist's point of view the ease of an autofocus system means that a photographer will never truly grasp the significance of aperture and iris control. This means that you may not fully appreciate the depth of the field you are looking at and as a result your images will fall short of perfection.
Although a manual lens setting will take time to master, the end result with significantly increase your perspective and quality as a photographer. If it doesn't work out most modern lenses allow your switch between manual and autofocus.
