    Handholds are an important thing. So are the placement of dials and buttons, screens, and DOF levers, displays and a myriad of other features that lure us. Thing is, while nice, the good photographers can take anything and make a hell of a picture with it no matter the brand or camera. It's an inside thing. My feeling right now is give it a month and see if we dip back into recession. Maybe there will be more deals.

    Btw, my A1 with motor winder which gives me a vertical shutter button to boot is a large piece of real estate for a such a small stand alone camera. You could get off cheaper till you find what genre you like. Who knows, it could be LF.

    Silly error in my previous post, right hand holds winder and releases shutter, left hand for focussing. That's what comes from looking at the combo. from the front - stupid or what!
    I'm into painting with light - NOT painting by numbers!

In the UK the original OM-4 had battery problems. This was corrected with the introduction of the Ti model (UK) and I believe the T model in America, but do check out the US version as I have no firm knowledge of this. I use OM-2, 2N, and 4Ti bodies, the latter is without doubt, my favourite.
    Thanks Allan. OM-4Ti is definitely a great option to explore. Here in US the T model and I already own the winder, I just need the grip strap for extra comfort.

    I'm not sure where anyone would get that impression, but the OM-1 and OM-4 bodies are identical in size. In fact, all OM bodies are the same size.

    I have never owned a Leica SLR, but I would have thought Olympus V Leica is a bit like comparing a Ford with a Rolls Royce.
    Interesting observation, I don't know that I have seen Olympus equated with Rolls Royce before. But the comparison is not really correct. Olympus made much better cameras than Rolls Royce made cars.
