Well since the old post got lost I thought I'd post an update instead.....

I was contemplating getting an old OM2 and a couple of lenses for a light 'snap' camera, as I used to have one and foolishly sold it to 'go digital' in 2000.....

Well I did get a black, boxed mint OM2n, with a 50mm f1.4, 24mm f2.8, 75-150 f4 (inc boxes and leather cases) and a T20 flash on e-Bay. What a great little camera! The 24mm has been a disappointment though - its an old SC version and flares very badly! I'm going to replace it with a 28/2.8 MC and get a film scanner.

The funny thing is the really good stuff (21mm lenses and pro versions plus the famed OM4T(i) ) is still quite expensive.... it would make a great 'street' camera - ohh dear having cured my NAS with a D2x, I'm in danger of getting OMAS on top!
