I fully understand your point about going back to using film. I have continued to shoot film even though I have too many digital cameras to even bother telling you which one's. I even brought my OM2 with me (and my E3) to Mexico just a few weeks ago. It is a joy to use this camera which I purchased new in 1978. I just love the challenge of properly scanning slides or negatives. Film perfectly compliments the digital world. Film is a different medium for being creative instead of pixel peeping the results from the next 'best thing'. Batteries for the OM 2 camera can still be bought at any jewelery store or online. Enjoy your purchase.
