    Hi guys... I'm new to the Olympus scene but have always wanted to try them as I've heard great things about their stuff. I was perusing Craigslist last night and found an OM-4, 50/1.8, 50/3.5 Macro w/ Case, 28/3.5 w/ Case, Tokina 100-300/5.6 (not a great lens, but I'll stick it on the shelf) and on Oly Winder 2. The camera has some brassing and one corner near the shutter button has a pretty good scuff, but it's functioning fine (I think). I got it all for $230 which I'm not sure is a GREAT deal, but it was pretty fair I think. Looking forward to trying it all out.

    Hi - another newbie.
    In the last month I have acquired from ebay an OM-1 (£21.00), OM-40 (0.99) untested but works fine and a T32 (0.99). These have added to the OM-10 I have had for almost 30 years. Now all i need to do is learn how to use them!!!!

    Welcome Olympians!
    There is something about this system that is special. You will not be disappointed.

    I just bought a 85mm f2. Somehow I managed to get it for under $300. I cant wait to put it through its paces.

    I found a Zuiko 50mm f/3.5 macro lens at a recent camera show. I've been looking for one for a while, and at less than $50.00 I am very happy.

    Two words. Telephoto madness. I got a 400mm f6.3 Zuiko. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet.

    Just bought a OM varimagnifinder. Not sure if I will use it - but it was a bargain.

    My latest OM purchase was a shoe-4 for my OM-2n. My next purchase planned for a few weeks from now is a Zuiko 28 f2.8 lens along with a T-32 flash.

    Well, the Zuiko 28 f2.8 is going to have to wait for a bit, I picked up a really nice OM-4 this afternoon and I have a test roll of Plus X in it right now.

    In the last couple of months I've bought an Olympus OM10 with manual adaptor (£20) a motor drive 2 (£13) an OM2n with 3 lenses (£33) an OM20 body (50p, long story sort of) 2x t20 and 1 t32 flash plus various other goodies. I also have an OM1n purchased new in 1982.

    i'm not that sure, ...but I think my last one was a genuine Olympus Skylight 1A 49mm filter

    the one before must have been the f=170mm close up lens for the Macro 80mm ƒ/4, I bought that one together with the 1.4X-A.
    and yes, after I had those, I bought a LNIB Macro 50mm ƒ/3,5

    Junk shop- mouse holed Oly leather softbag with....wait for it... near perfect 75-150! Cashier saw the mouse hole and asked "it it stinky?" I offered that it probably was and she said "$5.00 and no returns, we got enough stinky stuff in here!" Just for the record, the bag was stinky but the lens is sweet!

    Mine was an f2.8 24mm off eBay for about £60 i think. It is simply the sharpest Zuiko I have, but I am of the opinion that there must be some sort of sample variation in the Zuikos, so I guess I'm lucky with this one. I'm also lucky in that my 135mm f3.5 is also extremely sharp, but I bought that ... 35 years ago. I've also recently begun using my OM1n much more than the OM2SP. I like the back to basics feel and the meter simply never lets me down (had it converted a year ago with a service). So; OM1 and 24mm = perfect.

    I picked up my first OM, an early OM-2 - the one with the RESET * on the bottom of the lens mount. I got it at the annual Lichtensteig Photo flea market. It's in excellent condition, no dents at all, has been recently serviced. Came with the manuals and a brown leather ERC that's in amazing condition.

    I always lusted after one as back in the 70s the chairman of our local camera club had one, when I just had a tatty Edixa-mat. It looked so very sexy (the OM-2, not the Edixa...)

    I found a 28mm f2.8 at my local camera store (shhh, wife doesn't know yet).

    I haven't put any film through her yet; erm, what am I doing here talking to you lot? I'm off to show my new OM-2 the sights. Bye!

    Just picked up a non working (supposedly) OM10 body for £8 with the intention of doing up my old battered OM10, stuck batteries in it and it works. Also got an OM30 body with Sun 28-80 1:3.5-4.4 macro zoom for £10.50.

    Gee Pete, same thing happened to me! I bought an OM10 w/manual adapter and 50mm f1.8 lens for $9.00. Stuck new batteries in and presto, it works like a champ. All I really wanted was the manual adapter and now I have yet another camera to feed.
