    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    There is plenty out there. Make sure you check the aperture before you buy, some have a way of sticking. Press the depth of field preview button a few times and make sure it springs back properly.

    Let me know what you are looking for as with a huge collection of Zuiko glass, I do have a few duplicates. You may also want to look at some of the Tamron SP glass, such as 17mm, 24-48mm, 90mm f2.5, 300mm f2.8, 400mm f4, etc. Oh, you are going to need more bodies. Have a few of those too. Not a dealer, just a guy with a habit. Gosh, I'm starting top sound like a pusher. Bill Barber

    Now Bill, why encourage him like this? Don't you know that the Zuiko glass will poison his photographic vision and he won't be able to ever use a modern zoom on some modern body ever again?

    Seriously, my recommended Zuikos are the 24/2.8, 35/2.8, 50/3.5, 100/2.8 and 200/4. These are all very affordable and produce exceptional results. Best bang for the buck and they don't take up much space in the bag. I've got two OM bodies, (one with a winder mounted on it) and these listed lenses all in a SMALL LowePro Elite III bag with room for filters, film, and other miscellaneous items.

    Of course, he DOES need to get an OM-4Ti, but that's for another day.

    Gosh, Bill, have I found a kindred spirit or something? I've had a terrible OM/Zuiko habit for a couple of decades now. I still keep finding things I need, though. Right now it's a 35-70mm/f3.6 in pristine shape.
