The EM is an older NIKON that can use a lot of aftermarket lenses. The lens you mentioned will give crisp shots under perfect conditions but with the teleconverter will be a bit slow. The EM is not autofocus, which is a definite advantage when taking moving shots. Try the combination with K64 slides or Kodacolor on stationary AC or slow taxi shots where it is easy to focus and judge for yourself. Check the lenses for fungus; a byproduct of long storage and make sure the light seals are tight. I suggest it is easier to get started with a digital SLR outfit on this site. Good luck!

I used to have a Nikon EM which I used for airliner photography until may 2004. With some practice you will be able to take top notch pictures. I would suggest however to stay away from the 2X converter if you can, as the quality of your pictures will drop significantly.
