A compact outfit with all the same size filters.

Are you aware that the mercury batteries that power the OM1's meter are no longer available in most countries?....There are alternative silver oxides available of slightly higher voltage, which can be used with a Wein Cell. since I don't use Olympus anymore I cannot vouch for their accuracy.
There is a company in UK called 'The small battery company. It sells an electronic device the same size as the old mercury cells into which you insert a 1.5v Silver oxide cell and this reduces the voltage to 1.3. Silver oxide are cheaper and last a lot longer than a more expensive Wein cell does. I think the UK price is about 29 or converted approx $42.
