Olympus OM-System F.Zuiko Auto-S 50mm F1.8 Normal Lens
The Olympus F.Zuiko Auto-S 50mm F1.8 lens is a beautifully constructed normal prime lens that shipped with many an OM-series camera back in the day when manufacturers provided quality prime lenses as their kit lens. Although not the fastest 50 in its class, it's reasonably fast and is very small and light for a 50/1.8. And of course, as with most or all Olympus manual focus glass, it's tack sharp (assuming you get yourself a good clean working example).
