    Nice one Ron. I now have 7 camera bodies here and for some unknown reason I'm still looking at others.

    Just run a film through my lastest purchase of a mint condition OM-3 and I have to say I simply love this camera.

    Got a beat up OM1md with 50/1.8 for parts. Intend to resurrect my original OM1md from 1975 that is suffering wear issues. Organ Transplants-R-Us.

    For this, my first foray into SLR photography, I've gone for the OM series. After a bit of reading around the web I picked OM due to the wide selection of reasonably priced bodies, lenses, and of course the resultant quality shots. I really like the weight, feel, and classic look of the cameras and, as a first-time SLR user, the satisfying snap! As I'm a beginner I went for an OM-10 as they're less expensive and at this stage I don't think I need the more advanced features.

    I've somehow ended up with 3 OM-10 bodies! My first purchased camera having a possible defunct body bundled with it (£30 for two bodies with 1 x 50mm/1.8 - the spare body seems to work but haven't put film thru yet). My second camera was bought for the T20 flash it came with (bargain £20 with instruction booklet, a 50mm/1.8, cable release, strap, manual adapter & Hoya skylight). I'm having issues with the flash, though it might be my inexperience, so I will ask for help in another thread!

    This third body is in pristine condition, with new light seals and no cosmetic damage. At the moment I have Ilford 400 B+W in it. Still early days for me as this is my first roll and I have yet to see the results.

    Also bought a 28mm/3.5 wide angle on impulse, but failed to read the description fully and ended up with a lens slightly affected by fungus which I hope will not appear on the exposure. Currently looking out for a zoom or two of some sort, in and around 80-200 range.

    Thanks for listening to/reading me spout about these lovely cameras which I hope I will own and enjoy for a very long time!

    Nice start with those OM10's. They are fun little cameras.

    Keep that fungused lens away from the others. I hear that fungus will travel and infect your other equipment. I read that you can leave it out in the bright sunlight for a few days and kill the fungus but you might still have image loss.

    Yes seen the sunlight thing too. With various reports of success or otherwise but its worth a go. It being January and London I might have to wait a while for full-on sunlight! Cheers for the tip. Plus I have a few silica gel sachets which I will keep in with it for time being. Looks like it was stored somewhere damp, as there is green corrosion on the DOF button. Unfortunate.

    In other news I got the T20 working, but only on the less than pristine body which I don't intend to keep, not on my preferred body. Gonna have to look into what has gone wrong with the shoe, and if I can repair. Hmmm.

    A chrome OM-2n plus many bits and pieces, and a couple more lenses though I promised myself I wouldn't. Blame it on the male menopause. Now, just need to find somewhere handy to hide it all from significant other ...

    Trouble is you can't buy a body without taking a lens or two with it. For some reason "body-only" sales are double the price of a whole kit.

    I think it's the seller's mentality. Those selling a whole setup found in the closet versus those thinking they are the shrewd businessperson, piecing them out.

    The last thing was a 1-4N focusing screen. Before that, a lens hood for my 21mm f2 Zuiko.

    I just (4.4.2012) bought Zuiko 2x teleconverter. I'm going to try it with my Zuiko 600/6.5 lens. I know that 2x teleconverter is not designed to use with this lens but still I'll try. It fits very well and a first film is already shooted but not developed (Fujichrome).

    I found an Olympus 1.4x converter recently.Works well with my Zuiko 180mm. Wish I could afford the 600mm on *bay
