Although, they say the Olympus OM1n camera is nice and light and small, to me it seems too small and compact for comfort. I owned this camera and immediately returned it… Read Full Review

“It's great to have a trip down memory lane from time...”

Written on: 13/06/2003 by George Beyer. (1 review written)

It's great to have a trip down memory lane from time to time, which is what most of these reviews involve. And there's no disputing that the OM-1 was a very good camera in its day, although there are cameras with a lot more available nowadays. The real problem is that new buyers have a right to know the facts so they don't make a mistake:

1. Yes, this camera is no longer made but a good number are available on eBay in good to excellent condition. I know I just got two OM-1n's on eBay.

A good CLA from a good camera repair shop like Camtech($110) which includes the integration of the step-down battery diode for the metering system and you're good for another 25 years.

2. Yes, these lenses are no longer manufactured but I just got a 50mm f/1.4 a 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 and a 75-150mm f/4 all in excellent condition for reasonable prices.

3. True, no parts are being made for these old cameras anymore but there are still parts available.

I paid $80 for an OM-1n on eBay and I paid another $30 for an OM-1n for parts, turned out to be just as good as the $80 OM-1n.

But "an expensive paperweight for lack of parts?" I think that's much more the exception than the rule.
