    Olympus OM System Living History Farm

    Here is a photograph of the current state of the Olympus Living History Farm. This is an active kit with everything in use in one form or another. Not shown is a Winder1, extension tubes and the T45 flash (used for the photograph).

    When you turn your camera on, does it return the favor?

    It is of course appropriate that the "farm" is in Iowa!

    Certainly looks like a bumper crop!

    The seeds for this farm are not genetically modified! John

    No, John, but I believe much of it has passed through your hands for calibration and CLA at least once.

    Even though I don't have Oylmpus, still quite impressive!

    Jeff - It really is amazing to experience the single digit OM's especially from the perspective of using the other bodies prior to it's release. I can only imagine what the other camera makers must have thought when they compared it to their current line up then . . .

    That's a thing of beauty. I'm starting out with a similar project but working from the lower end stuff up. The om4ti and om3 are stupidly expensive at the moment, so I'm starting out with the 1 and 2, the 10,20,30 and 40. Lens wise I've just got the 50mm 1.8 standard and the silver nose 135 3.5 which is a gorgeous lens to photo through. I'd like to see what the 2.8 version would be like.

    I have an OM2 at John's now for service. I was given it by a neighbour that went digital. I liked the camera so much that I immediately bought a Zuiko 35mm f 2.8, two mounts for a couple of my favourite Tamron lenses and wanted to have it serviced. On the look out for a couple of more Zuiko's. Want to keep it all as small as possible. Looking forward to using it when it comes back.

    Everyone should handle an OM-1 at least once in their life.
    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.
