RUBBER2405's review of Olympus OM10

★★★★★

“I own a Fujifilm prosumer, a Sony Cybershot, a Minolta...”

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

Good Points
Ease of use, accessories still available, excellent photo quality, excellent build quality, compact for a film SLR.

Bad Points
Aperture priority only in base model. No control over shutter speed.

General Comments
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 primary lens supplied with the camera is fantastic and quite versatile. I have bought a 28mm zuiko lens, a kino 80-200mm lens (excellent), manual adapter, power winder (excellent) and a rubber eye cup (essential for sunny days) all for a few hundred pounds. You could buy a D-SLR, but you would have to spend over a grand to get as good quality as the OM10. Highly recommended.
