I got an Olympus OM Zuiko 50mm f3.5 macro lens, it would be interest to compare with Nikkor 55mm f3.5 Non-AI lens what is superb I love much.
Any experience ?

I have both of those lenses, but (typically for me) I have never tried to test or compare them. They are both very good.

One technical difference, if I recall correctly, is that the OM lens has a floating element to improve long-distance sharpness. Nikon added this in the 55/2.8, but I think it was a new thing with the Zuiko.
