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 I used to swear by the system, but slowly it's been replaced by other camera's (50% Olympus XA, 25% Leica M6, 25% Konica Hexar).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.

Yes, certainly an expensive lens in comparison to other 50mm Zuikos - but worth it! I'm also considering selling mine, in mint condition, to fund some other purchases I'm considering.

I love the Olympus OM series of cameras. I own an OM2n and an OM4Ti -- with an assortment of Zuiko glass. The OM4Ti is pretty snazzy and loaded with cool features, but I prefer the simplicity of the OM2n. It's a great camera.

Here's one with the OM2n, Zuiko 50mm F3.5 Macro, Kodak Ektar 100.
