Re: Recommended Olympus reading?

With the OM-2 you just pressed the shutter release too and you got a properly exposed photo (though not necessarily in focus!). You didn't even need to switch it on - when the mirror flipped up it switched the auto-exposure electronics on whether the meter was switched on or not. The meter was for indication only, the actual exposure was handled by a completely separate circuit. Maitani was a genius .

These days digital cameras are so complex that "how" to photograph is still very relevant in my opinion!
