Two cameras, 30 years apart. On the left is an OM-1 purchased in 1982. We've had many adventures. But film has its limitations, so I picked up the OM-D last week. I'm looking forward to the next 30 years!
Thanks,-- I was shooting with the OM-1 yesterday, and when I was putting new film in it (Velvia 50) I noticed some corrosion in one corner of the film chamber (far away from the moving parts, fortunately). I'll try to scrub that away the next time it is open. The light meter has failed, and I tried to get it fixed once with a conversion to the new non-mercury batteries. That didn't really work out, so I now use a light-meter app on my iPhone. But this is the one camera I thoroughly understand -- I have no hope of mastering all of the modes on the OM-D.
