Woolliscroft said:"Any Canon FD or Olympus OM defenders care to offer a take on their current viability? Nothing wrong with the Pentaxes, but there are a lot of good choices out there today, which have suddenly become affordable."
From that era, I can recomend the Olympus OM2n. They are as light as the ME Super but better featured and have TTL flash metering. The glass is at least as good and the range was huge, but they often go for similar prices now.
Brac said:In the UK the Olympus range seem to still go for appreciably more than Pentaxes of the same era. And equally Pentax lenes are much cheaper & more frequently found. One of the problems with the early Olympus cameras seems to be battery drain plus they required the 1.3 v mercury battery which these days means the expensive Wein replacement. I would go for a Pentax or maybe a Ricoh rather than an Olympus nice though they are.
