Re: The AD That Started It All!

You're making me miss my OM-1s – flogged a fortnight ago.
I remember the Don McCullin advert – I use an OM2 for all my society pictures. I pinned the picture of the system on my dad's darkroom wall.

John Swannell's nude in the landscape is the one I remember best. I seem to recall going to the exhibition when Olympus had a gallery in central London.

That's an early OM system photo. It shows the tilt/shift bellows unit that never made it into production. And a pretty sparse range of lenses, flashes and focussing screens compared to later system photos.
