Hi!
I would appreciate some quick advise.
The lens is to be used on a canon 60d.
If we set aside the difference in focal lenght. Which would you buy and wy.
The olympus costs about 100$ and the flektagon about 120$

I hope that others can tell you more about these two lenses in question, the Flek sure is famous around here. Without having personal experience of either of the two, I'd think that the crucial question here is if you rather use a 28 or a 35mm, and that you can answer only yourself.

What mount is the Flek? if it's not M42 you might have trouble using it on the Canon.

The Flek can focus very close (18cm on my Exakta mount version) so it's great for closeups of flowers etc.

I've no personal experience with the Olympus but that's a more modern lens and almost certainly has better coatings.
