I just want to say that reading the last few pages of this thread has inspired me to get out my OM gear and start shooting again after a couple years hiatus. Cheers

Yep, the OM stuff sure is nice.

In my quest to try small and "cost effective" lenses for a recently acquired A7, I received today a very nice OM4T, and a few Zuiko's. 24/2.8, 28/2, 35/2, and a 35/2.8 Shift. Most is boxed, as well as a few accessories, Winder 2, Vari-Magni, and T32. I'll acquire some longer lenses as well in the near future.

Looking forward to running some film through as well as trying the Zuikos on the A7.
Gary

I had a roll of TriX sitting around for ages, which even went with me to SE asia and back as I didn't end shooting it back in 2010.
As B&W film is rock solid, a 2 year past expiration with cool storage might not even be noticed.

So I kind of did. iPhones have a lot of nice voodoo which make it a great P&S and video camera and it will be the sidekick for that.
BUT the OM1 with 50 1.8 is in my backpack and I try to take some photos around my routine. So nice to be on TriX and with such a great camera.

It is great for my mindset, as I began to watch locations around my university, and possible situations to frame.

I thought I'd ditch 35mm but the partial death of my m43, the not so-portable Fuji 6x9 and the decent phone have made me recommision the OM.

I'm for sure taking it fro my student exchange. If I dated it well according to a discussion before in this thread, my body is from January 1976. 40th anniversary soon

Going to the Film Photography Podcast's Walking Workshop this weekend in San Clemente, CA.

I will take my OM-3 and maybe a MJU-II. Probably a Mamiya M645 too.

Gotta get that OM out in public again.

I can now confirm that the newer "made in japan" 35mm f/2 is better (sharper and less vignetting) than my low serial number silver nose version. At f/5.6, the old lens catches up (and both perform equally as good as my $1200 Canon 35L).

Anyone interested in buying my older zuiko 35 f/2 cheap? I don't have a need for two of them. It's still a wonderful lens, especially if you shoot stopped down a lot (street, etc.).

I am curious how they compare to the Zuiko 35/2.8 at 2.8 , 5.6 and above?

My 35/2.8 came to me in mint condition with its original case and caps. It's a great lens.

At f/5.6 and above, I am sure they are all dead even. Both of my f/2s are as sharp as my Canon 35L at f/5.6. At f/2.8, the new one is sharp and the older serial number simply is not.

Edit: I take that back. f/2.8 actually looks good on the older serial number lens. Just not as good.

I jumped in the pool recently with an OM-2 that was donated to me. It was not functional but after a CLA it works great!

I've not really used my OM's for some time now and I feel a little guilty. I used to swear by the system, but slowly it's been replaced by other camera's (50% Olympus XA, 25% Leica M6, 25% Konica Hexar).
Lately I've really been wanting to shoot with an 28mm and I'm not really feeling getting an externa viewfinder (and expensive lens) for my Leica M6, so I figured I'd pick up one of my old Olympi (or wouldn't that work because Olympus is Greek, not Latin?). Turns out both my OM-1's meters aren't really working. And my OM-4 needs a CLA too. Argh. Guess it's time to go meterless...

Does anyone have the OM winder 2 and if so could they tell me if its possible to use the grips shutter release and still use manual film wind? I have no use for the drive I just need a good grip in the studio and it looks awkward to have the grip and use the original release.

No. In order for the winder shutter release to work the winder must be switched on and will therefore wind the film afterwards.

Two new to me Zuikos

I joined the OM group in 2012 after getting a
black OM-1 w/ 28mm 3.5.
I had it serviced by CamTech and I was delighted...

Well I finally added more lenses: the 100mm f 2.8
and the 200 mm f 4

So far so good....

Please keep up posting the awesome Zuiko shots

What is it about the OM-1's shutter that makes it so magical? It's just so smooth and unobtrusive somehow. And that hugemonous viewfinder!

The whole OM line is pretty darn good, but I wish they could've captured more of the OM-1 magic in the OM-4s. The only one of the single-digit OMs I have yet to try is an OM-3 and OM-3Ti.

Still the OM-4 is a great camera. But, I see your point now.
The OM-1 is really a very smooth camera and a pleasure to use.

Within a week I've added a OM-4, a OM-2N black and an OM 135mm /3.5.

Ta! It is a tad expensive: none of my Zuiko lenses cost me more than Ł40.
