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.
    I wouldn't say that an OM-10 has a short life span - after all, yours has lasted this long .

    An OM-10 is certainly less robust than an OM-2, but there are thousands (millions?) of them out there that still work fine - because if you use reasonable care with an OM-10, and don't encounter any serious bad luck, it will probably function fine.

    Personally, I prefer an OM-20/OM-G among the consumer grade OM bodies. The built in manual exposure option is enough of a difference for me.

    I have a Rokkor 45/2 and am enticed by your zuiko 24/2,8. I am pretty sure that isn't a fair trade for you. PM me if I am on to something.
