OM-Zuiko are just perfect lenses. Viewfinder are incredible! I wish modern cameras were so good.
My film background is Olympus, too!
I started with an OM30 when I passed my O-levels at 16; got money from family as a reward for doing well.
A couple of years ago, I got back into photography, and picked up an OM40 and some nice glass (see my sig below) on eBay.
Finally, I got an OM2-SP in beautiful condition and fully working, for £90 on eBay, last August. A bargain!
But I don't shoot it much these days because of the crippling development costs. Ouch. £15 for dev+scan (no prints) on a 24-exposure roll. (But as someone else said, I have had no hesitation dropping over £7k on digital equipment in the last 2 years. Hmmm...)
