    Finally, success! Om-2n body, £40, looks in a decent condition
    Hi snapper. Hope it turns out OK. Have a good look at the light seal foam and the mirror cushions. If they are even slightly sticky it needs a CLA and the foams changing. I am sure you know about the prism foam - under the top cover the OM 1s and 2s had foam on top of the prism that degrades and eats away the mirroring - shows up as "stains" along bottom of viewfinder.

    I would recommend getting in touch with Mike Spencer at http://www.camerarepairs-r-us.co.uk/ and think about a service - he only charges around £45 including foam replacement, and if you are intending keeping it for a good while, it would be a good investment.

    Film is not dead, but to base any assumption of it's current health on the availability of Olympus OM cameras is mistaken logic.

    To bad you don't live closer, I have an OM-1n with 2 lenses you could have had for a few bottles of good cider.

    Did I read something about the d.g.t.l PEN camera's with adapters giving new connections for old lenses?
    Maybe the camera's are worth "nothing" but the f1.8 lenses are worth "hundreds" $/€/£?

    I usually sell OM-1/1N, 2/2N bodies (overhauled of course) for $200 - $225. What might be listed as a bargain by some dealers (which I have seen several times in the last month) have speeds that are all over the place along with rotted back foam. John
