Re: Are Long-time Olympus users like Leica Zealots?

I think there is a certain amount of zealotry from the old days, with the OM film camera system.

My late father -in- law, an engineer in medical engineering and an artist and showing photographer, dumped all his Leica, Canon and Nikon gear for the first OM-1 and the complete OM lens system and gave me one as a wedding present in '75. He would confide to me that the OM-1 was the best camera ever made and Zuiko lenses were the best. He was a complete fanatic and a technical perfectionist, He sparkled when he was showing me all the lenses and bellows. It rubbed off on me but after years of use my OM-1 was killed by Shamu. I had used it for astrophotography for many years. I loved the camera in ever way.

I've been waiting for years for the OM-D.
