    No you don't want an OM system with Zuiko lenses. I did that, from the very
    first ones that came out. I still have them all and all the Zuiko lenses that I
    could afford, because it's the best photo equipment I've ever had the pleasure
    of owning. But then when I moved to digital I found that only P&S camera designs
    could come close to how compact, quiet, reliable, and adaptable they are. While
    providing the same bright viewfinder as my OMs and the same high quality images.
    If you learned of the benefits of an OM + Zuiko systems you'll not be satisfied
    with anything less than the very best P&S cameras after that. The glaring
    drawbacks to the standard D-SLR fare would seem pathetic to you.

    At first glance, it looked like a level-headed third party comment.

    But on second reading, we see the 'cretin' name calling - sign of a
    personal grudge.

    Makes one have to wonder how Roger (or whoever) was able to so
    thoroughly piss on his parade to prompt such a sanity-challenged

    All P&S v's DSLR bullshit aside....

    I have an OM1n MD and a OM20 sitting on desk right now, plus several
    zuikos 50/1.2, 24, 28 & 35. (I have had a few 21's as well, but
    failed to find a really good one.)

    Unfortunately I also have a couple of rolls of Fuji trannie that
    remain unopened :-(

    I am now contemplating selling the kit because it just does not get
    used. Film sounded like a bit of fun for old time's sake, but I just
    keep picking up the digitals.

  6. Hmmm. Perhaps you could keep me in mind when you complete your
    contemplations (and remember how kind I've been in referring to your
    excellent pics and site...!) But I'd probably only want a coupla
    bits. Like you, I'm certain it won't convert me back, but I just want
    to own one for a while...

    As for the films, have they been in your glovebox all this time? (O:
    Maybe I'll pass on those.

    Actually that is not entirely true... the lenses get used on my 1DS2
    and 20D, but the old eyes are having problems and AF is becoming more
    attractive (...as is the wife. LOL)
