    Don't worry Bob, once you start down the OM path you'll have no problem selling off the other 35mm stuff to support the habit. There are even support groups - we call it "Zuikoholics Anonymous."

    Now I have absolutly no need for another 35mm camera, but like that now "classic" car you lusted after when you were young, now that I can afford one I am soooooooooo tempted!

    Is there a 12 step program for camera junkies?

    Hope that helped.
    Yes it did. What would be even more helpful is for you to send me that wad of cash! I can supply the eager mit.

    I bought my first OM-1 in 1971 and my second in 1973. Still have both -- one went to John Hermanson for an overhaul and should be good for another 30 years. They're excellent, small SLR cameras with nice lenses. Love 'em!

    Got my first OM-2n in 1983. Now I've got half a dozen OM's and a bunch of lenses and my wife complains that I'm not showing any signs of slowing down. If anything, it's getting worse. God help you, Bob!

    Don't worry, this is just a little one. surely, having just one, and not one of the fancy or famous ones, wouldn't hurt...

    Hey, it's got the 50mm f1.4 on it, too! That's one of the sharpest lenses out there!

    Here's a clean looking 1n that only has 1 hour to go...
