Every time I see this thread, it does stir up Olympus GAS.

My conundrum: I have 4 SLR systems now; it's too much. I'd like to get it down to two, but I just don't have the guts to go through with it.

EOS - I have a 630 and an A2. Lenses are just a Quantaray (Sigma) 24/2.8 and Canon 35-135 4-5.6 USM. This is my AF system. I'd like to add a simple tele zoom (cheap) and a 35/2. (not cheap)

Nikon AI - Nikon FG with a few sweet lenses: 35/2, 105/2.5, 135/3.5, 28/3.5, 50/1.8 pancake, 50/1.4, Tokina 28-85/3.5-4.5, Vivitar (Kiron) 75-205/3.8. I really like the metal shutter; feels like it's not going to die of old age, as cloth shutters eventually do. Thinking of adding an FM2N or a N90s/F90s.

Canon FD - This is on the block, but not worth much. I have a nice FTb with Canon 50/1.8 and 135/3.5, 300/4.5 plus an Albinar 28/2.8 "macro"

Olympus - My grandpa's OM1N with 28/3.5, 50/1.8, 135/3.5 and a Tokina 75-150/3.8. I'd like to add an OM2N and a 35/2.8 or 35/2. I feel like it's more delicate (esp. the shutter) than the Nikons, so I've been hesitating. Also, lower flash sync speed.

Talk me into taking a leap!
