    Answering for guitstik, yes his OM lenses will fit your OM-10. However, you are better off owning an OM 1 or OM-2 and junk the 10(its an entry level camera).

    Rick, your gonna make me blush. Now I have to live up to that glowing testimonial and make sure that the equipment lives up as advertised and go out to shot it, and we all know what happens then don't we.

    As for what I would take for this outfit, check out what KEH has the bodies and lenses going for and you should see that it would be more than a Minolta 85/1,7 they don't have an f2 on there but they go for about $450 on eBay. This kit would not be on the chopping block if I had the wherewithal to be able to purchase this lens. It is not a lens that I just have to have because I could make do with the Equipement that I already own, but this is my only daughter and I want to try to make this something special for the both of us. I want her to be able to exclaim proudly that her daddy took that portrait when people ask. Call me sentimental or just mental.

    As far as knowledge of camera's go, I guess you could say that I am entry level. What is the difference between the two?

    The best combination I can think of would be the 85mm f2 or the 100 f2.8. Hmm, maybe the 100mm f2. Bill Barber

    The Zuiko 100/2.8 is my "money lens". I've sold more portraits taken with this lens than any other.

    When you turn your camera on, does it return the favor?

    I have nothing against the Zuiko lenses or the Olympus cameras. They are fantastic and I use them all the time but I have had long and joyful experience with Minolta and the Rokkor lenses. The price on the Zuiko 100/2,8 is astronomical compared to the same in Minolta glass without much difference in quality, go figure.

    Rberry, what two are you referring to? The OM-1 was the first camera in that lineup. The 1n was next then came the 2n. This should give you a breakdown of the differences.

    The OM-1 and OM-2 are pro grade machines, built to take a pounding in the field by people who will do anything to get the money shot. Most of them have never seen that type of use though, therefore you still see plenty of them still in use.
    The OM-10 is not even remotely in the same catagory, plastic gears and auto mode only, unless you are fortunate to get the FC control. I bought two of them when they first came out, and neither one lived past two years, one barely making just over one year of service before the gears stripped. They were priced at $99 new, and were disposable. The FC control is worth more than the OM-10 body.
    The OM-G was the follow-up to the OM-10, and basically the same camera, but with the glitches worked out. As far as I know, the G still utilized plastic internals and short life span.

    Oh great, my OM-10 has a short life span. That sucks being two of my favorite camera's ( Minolta XE-7, and Canon AE-1) have recently kicked the buckett. I can still use the XE-7, but the light meter is gone and it puts a small scratch along the top of my film. Guitstik, I thought I might have the lens you were looking for, but turns out that I do not. It is a vivitar series 1, 35-85mm 1:2.8. It looks like a pretty good lens. Had it for several yeasr, but have never used it.

    It seems that I now have a lens to use for my daughters senior portraits. It's not the Minolta 85/2 that I was looking for but thanks to Rick A I will have Zuiko 100/2,8 to use with the OM cameras. So it appears that I will be holding on to all of it and not trading today. Thanks Rick for the use of that lens.
