    I have a beloved Olympus OM2 which has a sticky shutter. Is there a
    quick fix for this until I can afford to have it fully serviced?

  2. You might want to take a look at the Classic Camera Repair Forum, and
    maybe post a query there:
    http://www.kyphoto.com/cgi-bin/forum/discus.cgi. Lots of DIYers there,
    some quite knowledgable.

    You'd be surprised how much stuff you might be able to do yourself. Lots
    of people have posted questions about sticky shutters and such in other
    cameras of the same vintage, and many of them were able to solve the
    problem themselves. (I know nothing about OM2s, so I won't try to get
    your hopes up too much.)
