The OM4T is Olympus flagship and very robust.

OM4T exposure display - manual and auto aperture, is the most visible and well thought out arrangement in bright light or pitch black setting.

Since you list an FTN, you are already comfortable with the location of the shutter speed control of the OM4T. But there is one major diff between the OM4Ts (as well as OM1, 2 & 3) and all other brands and that is you will not see the aperture setting in the VF.
