    Just got a hold of an OM-30 (F)... with the autofocus zoom it was made for, it's an interesting sequence of model. The lens looks well made and it's supposed to work on all the single bodies. And with the M-cord, the winder 2, and a normal non-auto focus lens attached, it's a real trip in the OM size, albeit heavy. But we're talking tech 30 years ago. Neat, though. -Bob G.

    Been a bad week with Ebay. Bought a Zeiss Ikon Contina IIa and an Ihagee West Exakta TL500 and I currently have a winning bid on a Voigtlander Vito BL (wrongly described as a Vito B). There is also a Mess Ikonta being sold as an anonymous camera - no one has bid on that yet, so I might well have to.

    Just got an Olympus OM-2 that was frozen up. I've managed to get it reset but it's very clunky. Ever so often the mirror locks in the up position and the shutter release freezes as do the film advance winder. The reset thing frees everything up but in a few frames it starts all over again. Anyone have any ideas?

    I can't imagine although the Nikon F2 is a very fine SLR camera I can't imagine why anyone, even the most ardent photographer would want or need 10.

    Check the foam!

    Not sure what I'll be looking for but I'll give it a go. I don't see any flaking or such when I remove the lens or look through the finder. Nothing seems to hang the mirror up. There's a little lever that I can see when I remove the lens. It's on the right hand side with the lens opening facing me. If I move that lever down the mirror flops down into position.

    Thanks for the input Matt. I'll give it a go tonight.

    Art, check the mirror bumper foam (strip where the mirror rests in the viewfinder when in flipped up position)
    This can get gummy and cause the mirror to stick in the up position.

    Thanks Bruce. I'll give it a good check. Might need a cleaning and replacement.
