    I agree that a photographer can have too many cameras. Sometimes the best camera is the one you already own. I can speak as to the K1000. I used one of these basic, dependable cameras for about 9 months until I got an ME Super. I have found that it is an excellent camera and offers several improvements over the K1000. And, of course, you get the K-mount, too. However, if you like your Canon, you should stick with it or get a newer model.
    If you are considering switching to digital, ask yourself this: What would Ansel do?

    The LX was a nice camera to use, and the main appeal for me was that in the event of battery failure, you could still use all the shutter speeds from 1/2000 sec down to X-sych (which was 1/75 sec if I remember correctly). I can't recall whether you could use the 'B' setting mechanically, but the speeds from 1/60 down to 2 seconds were electronically operated. This was Pentax's pro-spec model, however it could prove expensive to repair if a fault developed.

    Set the elan to 'm' mode, and spend the cash on a new lens instead

    I've got a k1000, they are massively over priced on ebay. I'd sell mine if it wasnt given to me when i was 14

    I don't think you'd see much of a difference in your pictures with either system, since they are both quality, established brands with great optics. I have the OM-1, so obviously I advise you to go for that. The OM lenses are a very fine bunch of optics and the OM-1 is great in that the aperture, shutter speed and focus can be adjusted with one hand while looking in the viewfinder. The small size is also a result of extensive ergonomic studies by Olympus, and it really is a joy to hold, fits in the hand very snugly (that said, I have relatively small hands).

    3 lenses: 28mm f2.8, 50mm standard lens and 85/100/135mm short tele will give you a pretty comprehensive system. I got that setup, together with the OM-1 body in immaculate condition for £200.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    So do I.

    Mine has a winder: a pleasure to use.

    setting exposure compensation is a little fiddly, though.

    Unfortunately, though, my OM2 has begun to skip and overlap frames ; I have put it in for repairs.

    (However, just to make up for it, I have bought another OM2n (body only -I have plenty of lenses for it), over the weekend: in excellent condition! )

    Hey Ken. I find that when you allow that many Oly cameras to be that close together that they will multiply!
