    No! Hang on to your OM10, and have fun with them all.

    My old Pentax Spotmatic broke down a couple of weeks ago, so now I'm buying a new camera. This time I want an Olympus OM with good light meter.

    So wich one should I choose? I've read that OM-1 and OM-2 has the best viewfienders. I really like spotmetering for concert work, so a good built in spotmeter would be nice.

    OM10 are fine cameras that take great pictures. They're inexpensive and it's silly to discard them or disrespect them. They're better than the plastic garbage that pass for 'cameras' today.

    I would go for an OM1. Pure mechanical pleasure, good meter, the best handling out there (but I'm an Oly fan so am a little bit biased). No spot metering on both OM1 and 2. You have to go for an OM4 for spot, but that is substantially more money. Have fun.

    That is not completely correct. The OM-2sp has a spot meter. Perhaps not as advanced (no averaging multiple meterings), but a spot meter nevertheless.

    And the OM-3 has a spot meter too.

    All right, thanks to this thread, I just bought an OM-1N and a 24/F2.8 Zuiko lens to go with. Well, not "just" because of this tread, I'd wanted one for a while (since I was 8, actually, when my camp photo teacher got an OM-1), but this made me actually do it. I got a nice clean one with good seals, a working meter, and hot shoe. This thread did help me figure out which lens to go for. So thanks for making me spend money.

    Are there good third-party lenses for the Olympus? By which I mean not the cheaper lenses, but like Zeiss-quality lenses.

    Good Morning, Moopheus,

    I have a 105mm Kiron ƒ2.8 Macro which reaches 1:1 and is absolutely terrific. Probably hard to find, but worth having.

    Zuiko lenses are Zeiss-quality lenses.
    Not all of them. But most.
    So get Zuiko lenses, and you'll enjoy a quality camera with quality lenses.
