Hi from Spain

My name is Alberto.
Im from Spain and i love OM system.
I only have a OM1 with a 50 f1.8 and 85 f2 but after test it im going to sell all my Nikon gear (F4, F5, F100 and F90X) and goes for OLY.

My english is not fluid but i can understand english written without problems.
For this reason, sorry if i don't write too much.

Re: Hi from Spain

Hello Alberto,

Welcome to the forum.

Many of us started with the OM system, so you are in good company.

Please feel free to join in with any discussions, and ask whatever you like.

Re: Hi from Spain

Welcome Alberto to a very friendly forum. Many of us here have either had OM cameras in the past or still have them. I have had OM1, OM2 and OM10 bodies and many Zuiko lenses in the past. I just have a 50mm and 135mm now, which I sometimes use with my E-M1. I really want to get some OM bodies again but more to look at than use with film (digital is so much easier).
The Nostalgia Nexus part of this site is where you will find OM users talking about film and analogue gear although I am sure that you will also be welcomed here by regulars who have OM bodies and Zuiko lenses. They don't make photographic equipment like that any more!

Re: Hi from Spain

A warm welcome Alberto.
I still have my OM40 and OM4Ti. Even now the OM system is still more of a system than the offering from 4/3rds and micro 4/3rds.
