Welcome ot Mikes Olympus Camera room.

Olympus makes a fine line of cameras. I currently use an Olympus OM2 when I need more camera than my point and shoot cameras. I find this is happening less and less often as the quality of point and shoot cameras continues to improve. I also own an Olympus D500L digital camera that is useful for quick and dirty web page photos. I presently own several Zuiko lenses and am in the process of expanding my collection. I have always liked Olympus cameras for their size and weight. I learned early on that Nikons were excelent cameras, and that your neck, arms and back would hurt at the end of a day from hefting them around. Olympus cameras save your lower back from a ton of pain as long as you take a little more care with them than you might with a more rugged camera like a Nikon. Many questions on Olympus cameras are answered by the Olympus OM SLR FAQ.

I have recently started looking into Astrophotography. It seems fitting that Olympus cameras are the camera of choice of amateur astrophotographers. I am currently looking for a good condition OM-1n to add to my collection for its mirror lock-up feature.

This page will discuss my experiences with Olympus OM Zuiko lenses. I will chronocal my experiences purchasing lenses on eBay and other sources. A very good starting place for anyone uses Olympus OM system lenses, or wants to learn more about them is the Unofficial Olympus OM Zuiko Lens Page.
