    wow it's nice to find other OM users like myself here.. the OM are really beautiful cameras..

    i'm the proud owner of an OM-1 with zuikos 50mm/f1.4, 50mm/f1.8, 28mm/f2.0 and 75-150mm/f4.0.. it's one of the best mechanical systems i've ever laid hands on.

    maybe we could have an OM gathering one of these days..

    Joining in the fan fair a little late. Been handed a OM-1 MD from my MIL. Told that it's working , but I've yet to test it out. Any idea where I can get it serviced?

    I'm assuming by the amount of gear some have they are collectors, not regular users. It surprises to not see anyone with a 50mm 1.2 . Just curious why this might be?

    OM2n, 50 f1.2, 50 f1.4, 50 f 1.8 and a non Zuiko 28mm and 70-210mm. Got all this plus sequential shooting attachment, flash, all kind of filters, for $120 at a garage sale. Haven't used it for years but cannot part with it. I have a few Olympus Six's sitting on a shelf also.

    all that for only $120? Gosh you're lucky! I paid so much more for just a 50 1.4 :S

    i've got an OM 55/1.2 adapted for use on a canon 5D. lovin' it! never seen a lens that had such a large aperture. it's as if the whole lens is just glass and nothing else.

    i was wondering if i could acquire a 21 f2...

    but i'll be using it with an e-system camera, so it might be a waste.

    I just got an OM1N recently. inherited from an uncle of mine. It's older than me and it's got a 35mm, f2.8 lens. Extremely wonderful stuff

    I got an OM-1 off Ebay around 6 years ago. Though I have bought a E500 since, I still use it to take slides and B/W film, and I still it. My lens collection include 28mm f2.8, 50mm f1.8, 100mm f2.8, 135mm f3.5, 35-70mm f3.5-4.5 and 75-150mm f4.

    Click here for an interesting site with information of all the Zuiko lenses ever made for the OM series.

    And if you are in Singapore and looking for places to repair your OMs, you can try the Peninsula Hotel Shopping Centre or Adelphi Centre (near Funan Centre). I would recommend P&G Photographic Centre. They do repairs and sell second hand equipments. Below is their website:

    http://www.pgcameras.com/

    Do take note that repairing is not cheap, but reasonable, so be prepared to pay for it. The good thing is they offer free checking and quotations.

    BTW, I am in no way associated with P&G, just a satisfied customer

    I just got myself an E-30 with 12mm-60mmF2.8 SWD. In my OM stable, I have the following items:

    OM-1n
    OM-10
    OM-2
    OM-4Ti unfortunately, not all working well. The OM-2 has exposure problems, while the OM-4Ti has a jammed shutter. The former service centre could not repair either satisfactorily.

    Lenses:
    50mm F1.4
    28mm F3.5
    135mm F 3.5
    75-150mm F4
    F280 Flash

    Can anyone advice how I can use the OM Zuikos with the E-30 body, and what will ih have to do e.g. full manual and step-down aperture manually? TIA

    u need to get a om-4/3 adapter ard $40 for 3rd party version, use aperture or manual mode on your E30.

    u will not get any Aperture setting on ur cam, however, aperture setting is control on the lens itself.

    IS is still usable on OM lens attached.

    for more information, read on four thirds forums in clubsnap.

    Hi guys, i have an om2n that needs to have its foam replaced, where should i go to have it done?

    I went down to a particular shop at adelphi and was quoted 180 to clean and change foams plus "replace worn parts that are limited". I only asked for changing of foams and the reply was "i don't do that"

    my camera is working perfectly, just need new foams. thanks in advance.
