I was late to the game even back then with the OM4Ti. Initially I couldn't see the point of the all-singing, all-dancing newcomer as I thought my OM-1 did all I required. That only changed when the manager of my local camera shop phoned to tell me he had taken a mint 4Ti in part exchange and thought I might be interested. Initially I declined but he offered to let me try it over the weekend and on Monday I was back at the shop flexing my credit card. I experienced none of the battery drain or circuit board problems of the original OM-4.
