Something of a folk legend, this is the camera that made
Olympus a household name.
After gathering dust for almost 2 years I have
finally managed to get out on the road with this classic. I love the
handling of the Olympus OM series they are just a natural fit to my hands.
I know that is purely subjective but it had to be said. Objectively, what
is there to fault with an OM10? The metering is accurate the lens is
superb and the build quality is as good as any and better than most. This
one does have the advantage of having the manual adaptor, although I
didn't use this for the test shots because I wanted to make sure that the
auto function works. This is a particularly good condition example of the marques
and a delight to use.
