I said if it was OK with her then I'd take it and look after it (I'm shatting in case I knack it!!).
Well I've just picked it up today and it's an Olympus OM10 with a 50mm 1.8 Olypmus lens and 28 - 200mm lens plus a good bag of flashes, filters and films.
Any ideas on the quality?
I'll bang some pics up later.
I had one of these for years back in the day.
No doubt about the quality of the Zuiko lenses mate.
The only drawback with the OM10 was that it was an automatic exposure aperture priority camera and so you needed a plug in adapter to go manual which was a bit fidly but have no doubt about Olympus' quality.
Manual focus though but it has a good split centre circle for that in the viewfinder.
They started the tend of smaller SLRs with the OM1. The protoype OM1 was actually smaller than the eventual production madel as they decided it was too small for western hands to be practical.
Is the telephoto also Zuiko which is the Olympus brand name anyway?
