    Where did you find an OM-2s that wasn't black (they didn't make the OM-2s/OM-2SP in chrome).

    Or did you actually mean 3 copies of the OM-2? .

    Congratulations on your "kit" - have fun!

    Back in the 70s I felt odd man out with my OM1. Everybody then was using Canon, Nikon, Minolta and Pentax.

    Thank God the internet came along and reinforced my love for Olympus, when I find I haven't been alone.

    I love the 35mm 2.8 very small and light

    I also use the 50mm 1.8 a lot (I also have the 1.4 but for my prefered subjectof landscape I rarely need the extra speed of this somewhat larger lens) and the 28mm f3.5

    All have 49mm filter thread which is a great advantage

    Dont forget OM fans there is the "The Olympus OM cult" group here too

    BTW, anyone ever used the 40? Always loved to try one out but never had a chance. Prices are out of this world. To me the 40mm is the perfect companion to a small SLR like the OM.

    Actually 3 copies of the OM-2, one black. No OM-2s (at least not yet...) The black OM-2 looks so cute with the Winder 2 and T32 flash! I just want to take it out and shoot it.

    Don't shoot it! If its cuteness annoys you that much just smack it occasionally.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    The herd

    [QUOTE=ulysses;1064032]Since I started this thread, I've been shopping. My Olympus kit now consists of:

    3 OM-2s (1 black)
    1 OM-2n
    1 OM-10
    28/2.8 Tokina
    50/1.8
    50/1.4
    50/3.5
    35-105/4
    35-135/3.5-4.5 Tamron
    75-150/4
    80-200/4 Tokina
    500/8 Tokina Mirror
    T32 flash
    Winder 2


    If you were to do a little weeding, you might sell the OM 10. The 35-105mm is a nice walking around lens. Before you spend too much time trying to find a 21mm Zuiko at a decent price, you might look for a 24mm f2.8 Zuiko and then either the 85mm f2 or 100mm f2.8 Zuiko. In my opinion, the more you use prime lenses the more you will grow to like them. The OM 2S is one of my favorite OM models however their circuits do go bad occasionally (more than the other models) and when that happens, there is no fix.

    How are you using your OMs?

    ulysses, OM-10 is a no-no, as for me, is any non OM Zuiko lens. Safeguard your investment and buy an OM-4Ti body.
    P.S. The Zuiko 100mm 2.8 is my personal favourite.
