  • OM-1 miniatures!

    Some of you may remember a long time ago that we gave away a good number of O-M1 miniatures.


    **** Please note, I only have black OM-1 miniatures, not the silver version below. Otherwise they are the same, with the two lenses. ****


    Here's the description from February 2012:

    To celebrate the launch of the digital OM or OM-D E-M5 Olympus has produced a commemorative miniature of an OM-1 with two lenses that actually fit the OM body. This is what they look like and you can see from the last photo how small these models are:







    The presentation box comes with an OM-1 body and two lenses and these are not made for sale.

    After a bit of a clear out I have found a whole box of them

    As part of our ongoing funding appeal, I'd like to offer these to e-group members. Here's the plan:

    That is a good idea Ian. I don't need one as I found mine up the other day and a very cute little item it is too. It's something that no self respecting OM user should be without. Hopefully it will help to generate a bit of cash for the forum.

                  Re: OM-1 miniatures!

                  Haha - well thank you for all the excitement! Can I just ask for everyone to hold on until tomorrow. It appears the box has been put back in storage and I just want to double-check that these are the OM-1s pictured. I have just realised they might be E-M1s, but I will check and get back to you all tomorrow morning.

                  Sorry for this complication!

                      Re: OM-1 miniatures!

                      Good morning everyone; I can confirm that the miniatures are OM-1s, but they are black, not silver as pictured earlier. They have the interchangeable lenses. I will post a photo shortly

                          Re: OM-1 miniatures!

                          Here are the photos:





                          So just to repeat, the offer is:

                          As part of our ongoing funding appeal, I'd like to offer these to e-group members. Here's the plan:

                          The miniatures will be posted Royal Mail Second Class. Until initial requests are satisfied and only if there are any left over, it's first come first served and only one miniature per member, please.

                          I'm happy to post miniatures overseas but I'd need to calculate the extra cost of postage to charge.

                          The sales will be handled by the company (The Write Technology Ltd) and so will be independent of the T&Cs and Privacy Policy of the e-group website. The company will of course honour your privacy and personal details.

                          If you are interested, please email me via ian.burley (at) e-group.uk.net

                          What if you are not a member?
