“The Olympus OM10 I have, and it's as old as I am (22...”

Written on: 28/03/2009

The Olympus OM10 I have, and it's as old as I am (22 yrs) and it's still good & looks like new. I also got the 50mm lens along with a 100mm lens, both of which work like a charm. A good camera that works like a proffesional one when you don't have deep pockets to buy yourself a high priced digital one. Easy to use, durable and reliable. The more you take care of it the more it will last you for those moments you just don't want to miss. If you're looking for a flash head for it, bad luck… Read Full Review

“An excellent camera in every way. Great build quality,...”

Written on: 14/07/2007 by RUBBER2405 (8 reviews written)

An excellent camera in every way. Great build quality, ease of use, reliable picture quality, still a good range of lenses and accessories out there, although the lenses are generally second hand now. Most OM owners have looked after their lenses very well and many are like new. EBbay is a good place to buy all you need. I have a Fujifilm digital prosumer camera and a Minolta X-300 SLR 35mm, with Minolta OEM lenses, which both take good photos, but they just aren't as good as the Olympus… Read Full Review

Overall, Olympus OM10 is an excellent and comfortable camera. I took this excellent, compact and versatile camera on a 3-month safari in Africa together with a Rokinon 80-200 f4.5 lens and took great shots. Plus ease of use and lens change meant I did not miss many animal moves… Read Full Review

An absolutely super camera, mine with a Carson 1;2,8
f135mm, very surprising ergonomically, well though out. Batteries did prove costly 16 dollars with free 2 yr replacement. As enjoyable if not more so than my om 1.

The Olypus OM10 is a good slr film camera, the standard lens is good and it is easy to use. However, without the battery it's useless, because it won't work then… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/07/2007 by RUBBER2405 (8 reviews written)

I own a Fujifilm prosumer, a Sony Cybershot, a Minolta X-300 35mm SLR and a number of other 35mm compact cameras and not one of them comes up to the quality of the Olympus OM10. It is compact, it takes great photos and is easy to use. I have bought a manual adapter for it so mine is fully manual (recommended).
There are still accessories available, although most lenses are now second hand. Most OM owners have nurtured their equipment so consider e-bay to look for items. The standard 50mm f1.8… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/12/2006 by oniko (35 reviews written)

Very popular when new, as it was small and light with excellent lenses.

Aperture priority only until you plug in the manual adapter then you get manual as well.

Olympus got rich on the mui compacts and soon dropped the om system.

The om4ti was the last model but at $ 1200 English pounds was very pricey for was it was.

You can buy 25 om10s for the same price

All lenses had built in depth of field previews buttons and also printed on the lenses.

The have a very good auto winder and motor… Read Full Review

I have 2 x Zuiko OEM lenses for my OM10 and I haven't found any depth of field preview function on it, just the scale printed on the side. It may be however that I don't know where to find it, so any suggestions would be appreciated.
<br/>thanks.

Hi there
<br/>
<br/>It's the bottom one of the two buttons on the lens that removes it from the body. Just push it with one finger and you will see the lens stop down, i.e. depth of field.
