    my close to mint condition om2sp with std lens from the ebay.com was only 507sing$ shiping inclusive. i doubt u could get anyhing like this so cheap locally.

    very good price for an excellent condition om2sp! aww... only if i had a credit card........

    some weeks back i saw a 350/2.8 sold at 800+ USD..

    Default Conventional OM and Digital

    Hi,

    Nice to hear from some film users here, especially OM. I use OM-1 / 2 / 4 / 40 with some zuiko lenses and a rather full complement of T flash gear.
    By the way, the series 2 screens are worth every penny that you pay for them. I have it on the 4 and it has changed the brightness of the viewfinder totally.
    As for Digital, I have the Camedia C-2000. Beautiful lens and pictures but I wish I could trade for a C-2020 or C-2040 just for the manual mode alone.

    Cheers

    Default OM users... help!

    hi i anybody knows where can i send my OM-4 for repair?
    i think the electronics is dead, as there are no metering in
    the viewfinder even when new battries have been replaced.
    i have call Olympus Service Centre and they said there is no more spare
    part for all of their OM systems...

    Condolences, don't think there's much you can do for it. Will keep you posted if I find out more.

    Regards

    perhaps you can try camtech at www.zuiko.com The procedures for new customers can be rather tedious though.

    Interesting! There's actually a OM user base in SG!

    Unfortunately when I inherited the OM-1 from my Dad (who in turn inherited it from my Uncle) it is in quite bad shape--scratched focussing screen, dirty mirror, etc.

    Neverthless, it's still working fine and dandy, even though it's probably older than me!

    Is there any place in Singapore that I can bring my OM-1 for a checkup?

    Default Hello All Another OM-1N user here

    Wow an Olumpus OM thread. I thought I was extinct in using an OM-1N (I have 3 bodies) and around 12 Zuiko Lenses (not for sale so don't ask please).

    It's been a long time since I took a picture with these cameras - last time was one year ago. I have always maintained my cameras well but Olympus Singapore does not service them anymore. Anyone Know of a good tech that can do the job proberly and change all the light seals etc?

    Also where can I get Kodakchrome in Singapore? Ruby has been out of it for 1 year plus

    Thanks

    Hi There,

    Count one zuikoholic more. If you're wondering where Ron's OM4Ti & macro lenses went ... look no further :-)

    Best Regards,

    Count me in too.

    Have a OM2 with 50mm f1.4. DOn't shoot much with it nowadays. Might expand on the lenses one day if I have the dough.

    QUite difficult to find 2nd hand lenses for it.

    I got an OM 4 and an OM 3. Got a couple of lenses: 35/2, 24/2.8, 50/1.8.

    Was thinking of englarging the system but I got system overload. My M-system and OM-system look ready for the buyer's block...

    Interested?

    ha.. i sold my 24/2.8 and 35/2 couple of months back.. selling your gear to shops now might not be a good idea as they'll tend to say things like "nobody uses it now".. "it's hard for me to sell it off" and stuff like that.
    guess selling it to om users might be a better idea.

    juz my 2 cents.

    Right you are on the above. Which is why I've not bothered with the shops. Which is why I have also left this shameless plug here for anyone interested in my OM stuff.

    Default OM2n Problem

    Hi all,

    Glad to have found a local OM user group.

    My OM2n has been giving me problems lately & hope to get some advice.
    Everytime the camera selects a high shutter speed (1/500-1/1000) in Auto Mode, the shutter appears to be functioning normally in my view finder. However when I develop the photos or slides, the right half of my photo frame gets blacked out. I was not using flash during those times so it is not a flash sync issue.

    Anybody has any idea what is wrong with my camera & how I can solve it?

    Many thanks in advance.
