When I decide to shoot at a specific aperture, using center spot or partial metering, I will test the metering at different tones/colors/shades and highlight of my subject/s and dial in the compensation, take a couple of shorts and choose the best. Evaluative metering will be less accurate and I will use it only for general landscapes. For this reason and also owing to age and degradation of my poor eyesight, I have decided to move to Pentax. I will be selling off my entire collection of OM lenses plus my 5D.
    Sad to see you go Anthony, you have greatly contributed to thread with your wealth of information. I will try to add some into the thread as well...Been giving the OM Zuiko 135mm f2.8 a test run for the past 2 days.

    Hi,
    Not sure whether this is the correct place to post...but I've just gotten myself an OM2S and some lenses. The camera is so tiny.. but feels solid. I used mainly Nikons, and this is like the FG in size. Still trying to learn the intricacies.

    Just keep the photos coming, who knows I may be back again. My whole system was sold to a nice gentleman today, lock, stock and barrel.
    Home is where the heart is.

    Converters... tough one. If you really want a converter for the correct size AND for the step down voltage of today's available batteries, see here, the MR9. http://www.criscam.com/mercury_battery_adapters.php

    You can also try the Wein cell batteries, which is advertised to work. I have not used them personally though. http://www.weincell.com

    Alternative, several home-made versions have been circulating around the internet.

    As for cheap or not cheap.... I cannot comment. heh Hope it helps.

    Nice camera you have. Did you get the manual together with your purchase? If not, google for it. I myself love the size of the OMs too.

    IIRC, metering is done TTL, through the lens, so i think a hazy VF would not affect your metering but probably impede your vision. You could try to find a busted camera for parts and switch its clean prism with the hazy one.

    It could be that your prism is affected by the deteoriating seals that have melted over the years, thus the hazy VF.

    Thanks for your encouragement ! I'm new to film photography, just start using the OM1 since Sept last year.

    Have one question (but not so related to OM system): I send film to the lab for developing and scanning, but usually I found the scan (16-base), when viewing large, looks not as sharp as digital JPGs on my computer screen. What's about your experience? Do you guys have a scanner at home?

    Anyway, more photos to come...

    OM1 + Super Ozeck II 28mm f2.8 / Kodak ColorPlus 200

    I'm using the hearing aid batteries Energizer 1.4V 675 zinc-air. Bought at Guardian last time. It is smaller than the OM1 battery slot but works.

    Nice pictures, love the tone. keep em coming! Maybe to make the thread more informative, we can include the camera, lens used, or aperture information..settings.....to make it more interesting and informative. Just a thought.
