Where have all the om4/3 finger grips gone?
Were they an optional extra?

They are pretty rare and usually pretty expensive. I have 5 of them, but I have always thought they would make a terrific (and easy) 3D printing project.

Thanks Steve! Was a bit unsure about posting a picture taken with a Leica in the OM thread

If you want to get rid of one of those, I can pass my Address

My OM-1 has been sitting idle and jammed for a while and I want to arrange a CLA.

Two months ago I saw a listing for an OM2 with a 50mm for 30€. Idiot me to pass it up as I was academically busy. Keeping track of new listings.

I thought I'd leave 35mm aside but I've been too naïve. I did grab a cheap Nikon F80 and it is fun, but the Prime experience still is in OM.

Thanks, but I use them all the time and they are rotated from time to time.

If it's a self timer jam, it's easy to unjam, but I don't know how to fix it permanently (other than a service).

Began as such and probably related.
I retookit from storage and tried to see again. Back when it jammed heavily I took out the bottom plate to see, and there's a little lever that moves when cocking, pivoting when actioning the shutter but it does not return all the way to the initial position. The shutter button remains soft and I can see that the lever cannot be released as it does not catch.

I have seen though that running the selftimer does let me shoot and wind, but afterwards the button remains soft.

Was looking to send it out to one of the UK based repairers.

I bought it CLA'd in '08 but probably the Fall temperatures of Sweden and the craze of NYC didn't help it! After a couple weeks of sitting idle, suddenly jammed... Last actuation was with a cable release, which I don't know to what extent may have done something.

Could do with the 24mm /2.8 and the 85mm /2 as these are the only ones that I would use and I don't have.

Great example of the sharpness and smoothness of the 28/f2 Richard! What a gem.

If anyone has an OM-2n they're not using and willing to sell to a good home, care to shoot me a PM? Trying to get my girlfriend into film photography (she really liked using some of my RFs but i think is more used to the TTL of SLRs, and the OMs do have such a wonderfully small profile, and my guess is a big heavy Nikon would scare her off)... KEH has no bodies

Has anyone here ever slaughtered an OMG for its matte screen? I have one on my way here for operations, after failing to find a decently priced 2-13 for my girlfriends OM4Ti.

What other parts could be salvaged? I think the prism should fit an OM1, so that could be sold afterwards. Maybe the film cassette fork? That's also a part that should be in demand after botched repair jobs

Hi Jockos, have a look here:

The exploded diagrams of the bodies give a good idea of what parts are interchangable.
Cheers,
Jan

Is the om40 screen any good? The OMG should have a extra bright!

Thanks Jan!

the om40 screen is meant to be a 2-13 without the tab.

I believe I read that John Hermanson disabused this rumor.

My OM is one of the two digit ones, an OM-20. Still, it's an amazing camera.. I wish I could catapult it back in time to the days when I had my first camera, a Zenit-E. The Olympus is so much lighter, nimbler and quieter.. Oh, and it's much better looking as well..

That 50/1.8 Zuiko is an excellent lens. I have just got an adapter so I can use it on my Sony A7S as well as my OM-1 and it is great on both platforms.
