Well, OM-1, OM-2, OM-3, OM4. Is that not newer versions in one camera line? I can't reacall any 2 digit cameras other than the OM10 and OM40 so only 2 in this line up.

To answer the general question in the OP then digital gives me the useable high (and variable) ISO and reasonably good autofocus (better than my manual focus - I did think about an OM 707 at one time). I also like the ability to take multiple duff shots for little cost. Storage is easier but I am also worried about long term viability.
