The camera arrived on Saturday and I ran a 12exp roll of Fuji Superia 100 through it. The camera takes a bit of getting used to, like all cameras, but I really like the exposure accuracy. The t32 flash performs nicely too, especially when you learn how to use it. :smile: Here's my favorite shot from the first roll:

Fuji Superia 100, Olympus OM2n, f4, 1/60th sec, Olympus 75-150mm lens

I have another shot from the second roll that shows exceptional sharpness. Will scan it tonite and share.

I think I prefer to use it in manual mode. The automatic setting produced a couple of unexpected results. It tries to NOT use the flash whenever possible. I had the flash charged, ready, lens set at f2.8, and went to take a shot, but the flash didn't fire. I stopped down to f8 for the next pic and the flash fired.

A great result. :smile:

The OM2n is very nice (I have one). I also use Fuji Superia Extra, usually 400 ISO.

The flash not firing in auto isn't a problem, it just means the camera is using a speed faster than the sync speed (1/60) so it's not possible to use flash on speeds faster than 1/60 so it doens't fire it. What you've done is correct, just stop it down a bit.

Pics look great, congrats on your purchase! I might keep an eye out for that lens, didn't know they were that sharp!

Sharp lens is the 28mm

The very sharp picture, the second one, is shot with the 28mm f2.8 lens. Don't recall the setting but I think it was f8. Then again, all lenses are sharp at f8. :smile:
