    For the American market (4% of the world's population) the camera was
    known as the OM-4T. In the rest of the world (96% of the world's
    population), it was known as the OM-4Ti. There's no other difference,
    but the OM-4T will have a slightly lower residual,value than the
    OM-4Ti in markets outside the USA, and vice versa.

    This is an outstanding camera. It is becoming difficult to obtain
    good used examples of the best pro grade Zuiko lenses for it, but
    there is a huge selection of good consumer-grade Zuiko and off-brand
    glass at amazingly low prices.

    Good luck and Enjoy!

    Sorry forgot to ask TP, which do you consider as the pro grade lenses?

    The body comes with a 50mm f1.4, Im probably gonna look for maybe a 28mm f2

    And also if i get a beattie screen (or equivalent) will it affect the
    mettering?

    Hmm. That would take some time ... I suggest you look at the KEH web
    site and look at the lenses with big price tags - they are the pro
    lenses!

    http://www.keh.com/
    28mm f/2 is a fine lens. Any of the wide angle f/2s are in the pro
    category. But the best of all the 28mm lenses is the humble f/3.5, if
    you can live with the maximum aperture.
    Yes, it will need adjusting. The Beattie screens are very grainy to
    focus on and an acquired taste.

    One that I never acquired.

    ;-)
