Nah, they all pretty much got away from me. I did get an OM2 Spot come in. It was locked up but a quick read of a post by Simon Hawkett soon had it diagnosed and freed up. Idler gears were out of sync causing it to lock up. Just need a rewind crank and its good to go. Got a spare film door off an OM1 and its almost complete. Job lot included an OM20, while the meter and shutter all work well it trips the beep for the battery check whenever the shutter fires. Kind of like an electronic Canon Cough.

The OM1 in Wakey has gone alas, I was too slow, it had an f1.4 50mm on it as well. Someone nearby offered me one, I still haven't got them to reply and actually meet up! I've got all Pentax stuff but I do wonder about the Olympus, the old RF I have gives such great pictures. Hard to say why, and it just begs to be used. I must fix the wobbly barrel, though the one film I put through it came out just fine.

I think my go to brand is Olympus, not sure why. Shame about the OM1, really is a great camera.

Probably not, spent out again this month. Might be a sub for your lost OM.

I think I need to stop looking, because if I do stop then I won't buy anything! Shipped off a couple more lenses today. Need to CLA a few cameras and get them out before Christmas. I might even take a few pictures!

I'm just hunting spares at the moment. I have a couple of OM cameras that need a couple of little bits to make complete.
