General Comments
I was surprised to see the Olympus OM4ti here as it's been discontinued for some time by Olympus. If you have the camera already, it's a great collectible, but I'm not sure I'd recommend it to a new buyer as a user camera. For one thing, it's expensive, even used, and the camera is no longer in production, so getting it repaired or accessorized could be a problem. Zuiko lenses, while very good as new purchases, are relatively small in number, now well-used, and don't take kindly to rough use, so you could be waiting a long time to find extras. Then too, the lens line was largely limited to wide angle and standard lenses and has a distinct lack of good, fast telephoto and zoom options. When you add up what you'd spend on a complete rig, you could get a modern pro 35mm setup with much more to offer and much better flash results. The Olympus 4ti SLR is really more of a collector camera.
