Bold move there Kenzie. Do you have any lenses? I sold my kit 14-40 and Panasonic 40-150 to fund the Panny 35-100. I'm still hankering after the Zuiko 12-40 pro but even second hand, It'll cost more than I paid for the EM10.

Johnny, thanks for the SRT tip. Fortunately, I don't do Facebook. A couple of years ago I'd have jumped at it but I've already got a 1.4 and an SRT full house. I'm starting to get selective.

Yeah, I have the two lenses that came with the Pen, I bought the chrome EM10. Can't quite remember which lenses, ones a 14-42 and the other one is a 40-150. With the news of Olympus selling off their camera business I didn't want to get caught out with a price hike of them becoming collectable. You have the Mk2 don't you? Cheapest I saw was 94 from MPB but it has a broken lcd, which seems kinda pointless to buy.

LCD is touchscreen so yes, no point in buying a broken one. The 14-42 (not the pancake) is the one I had and it's a decent enough lens. Not used the 40-150 Zuiko but it's meant to be a solid performer too.
I wonder if they will start to sell things off? I like the compactness of M43. The EM1 is a bit too big but the latest model EM5 looks pretty good.
I'm halfway through a film in the Spotmatic, trying out a few different M42 lenses

Are you keeping track of what lenses you are shooting with? Which OMD do you have again? I keep forgetting!

You were right earlier. I have the OMD EM10ii
I quite like the Spotmatic and the metering is easy to get used to. But it's a hefty lump with a Helios on the end. I'm trying to keep track of the lenses but I'm too lazy and unscientific to write them down. Just hope to remember by association.

I need to be better at writing settings down, but to be honest its mostly sunny 16 anyway. Unless its on auto of course, in which case you have no hope.

I got an email back from the optical company about the prisms. They can attempt to do it but can't promise that the Judas and meter mini prisms won't fall off, if I want to go ahead at my risk it would be 102 per prism plus post. I declined but it's cost me a hefty return fee.

That's surprisingly and scarily not cheap. Worth a try but better off buying a new camera or a dud donor at that price

I know, shame really as both are in working order. Your copy is still mostly usable but the other is too far gone. Another company has said that they can do them for 30 each plus post, but still looking at 72.
