View Full Version : Olympus 35LC
A friend of mine offers me an Olympus 35LC for 15 euros. It looks nice although big. I cannot find much information about it. Is it worth it? Its lens is a G. Zuiko 1.7.
The LC is the same lens as the SP. it llacks the Program mode.
Instead, it has a coupled manual meter and manual exposure.
A friend would just give it to you I think...I would not pay that price but that's me, when was it last CLAd..maybe I would pay if it was recent.
The lens is spectacular. Throw the money at him, grab the camera, and run away before he can change his mind.
I saw this on a japanese page:
Lens: G.ZUIKO 42mm/F1.7 (7 elements in 5 groups)
Shutter Speed B・1～1/500s
It's manual mode only with light meter. The size is quite big..
I have owned an LC for many years. It's a lovely camera. Match-needle metering, great, great lens. Very reliable. Assuming it works, yes, grab it.
Phew! Bought it. He gave me a dozen of expired film rolls with it too. Indeed it is quite large reminding me of the Canonet QL19. Nice looking though!
Doug, thanks for the info. I was thinking that there was a problem with the light meter as I have never seen a match needle light meter in an Oly 36 before.
Cannot wait trying my first roll with it.
Smart man. A couple shots to give you an idea of what to expect from the lens (from my SP):
Great photos! I knew it I could not go wrong with an Oly 35!
