Re: OM1 give away - really!

Morning Ian -

Yes please, I would love to have one - body and lens would be wonderful! That would take me full circle, as, of course, I have used film cameras for a lot longer than digital!

Regards,
Ann1e

Re: OM1 give away - really!

I'd certainly be interested Ian depending on how deep your box is.
Many Thanks for the thought.
p.s. Are they key rings or tea caddies?

Re: OM1 give away - really!

You are most generous Ian, if there is a spare body I would love to have one with a 50mm although I'm not fussy

Re: OM1 give away - really!

If these are the ones I'm thinking they are (black and boxed) you'd need very small hands indeed to use them

Re: OM1 give away - really!

If there's a lens or body left, count me in too. I never had an OM, and always wondered...

I'll have a 50mm f1.8 for sale when I get around to advertizing my gear.

Re: OM1 give away - really!

I don't want to disappoint anyone, but these OM1s and lenses are really very small...

Re: OM1 give away - really!

A lens hire customer has just been to collect his gear and I gave an OM1 to him. I think he was pleased. But he uses an E-P3.

Small enough to hang from the car mirror instead of the fluffy dice?
