    Does anyone have for sale, or know where I might obtain a hot shoe #4
    for an Olympus OM1?

    I am also looking for a wide angle lens to suit the same camera, 28mm
    or 35mm.

  2. Have you looked in Photographic trader?

    When I was looking for some lenses for my Om-1 I had a look there, and there
    was quite a bit moving around (albeit swamped by the Nikon/Canon side of the
    market :)

    You can buy it at most(?) newsagents.

    Or if in Sydney, look in the windows of some of the big stores eg Fletchers
    Fotographics - they often have some used OM gear.

    Thanks for the info. I will try the mag if I can get it in Perth.
    Regarding the un-availability of 1.35 volt battery, I am in the
    process of modifying my camera to use silver oxide cell and Schottky
    diode to drop voltage from 1.6 to the required 1.35.
    If you still have your OM1, it might be worth doing the mod.
