If it was for me, I would get the OM1 or 2 and I still might since my appetite has been stoked by looking at and holding the OM10. But it's a gift to my niece who is still early in her journey in photography. Thanks for the insights on the OM system.

Does she have access to facilities to develop and print film?   Sending the film out to be developed and scanned defeats some of the purpose of shooting film.

When you scan film you end up having to deal with the limits of both digital and film, and you lose some of the grain in the conversion process (unless you scan at a ridiculously high resolution).
