Good Points
Small and light, high quality lenses, very cheap

Bad Points
Manual adapter now costs more than camera and len.

Not many spare parts, cheaper to get another camera.

Olympus has now stopped making lenses and bodies in this range since 2005 so every thing now is s/hand

General Comments
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 drive system, and great macro system.

If you want something small and light that you can stick in a small day pack or bag this is the way to go.
