The OM-10 was the first 35mm camera I owned, and today Olympus has announced that there will be no more OM cameras from them. "Olympus will discontinue the OM series of 35-mm cameras. The company will continue to manufacture selected lenses and accessories for the OM System and they will remain on sale with limited availability until the end of March 2003." This is not a surprise considering the huge shift of ownership from 35mm to digital.
Olympus will discontinue the OM series of 35-mm cameras. The company will continue to manufacture selected lenses and accessories for the OM System and they will remain on sale with limited availability until the end of March 2003.
Olympus launched the original OM-1 in 1972 and has developed and sold numerous OM System lenses and accessories. After 30 years, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find stable supplies of parts for the camera system. This has made it impossible to continue to keep the system on the market. Olympus is committed to providing excellent levels of after sales service for its products.
Body, Lens, Flash:
Olympus will maintain parts for approximately 10 years after the end of production.
Olympus will maintain parts for other accessories, but time periods differ from part to part.
