Olympus OM system: Manual for Zuiko interchangable lenses group

While vacationing in Denmark, I came across a great photography store Photographica in Copenhagen and bought a used Olympus OM-2n body with 50mm f1.4 lens from them. They were nice enough to also give me couple of OM-series brochures & manuals - I just love the 70s look&feel of the imagery and copytext in these! Of course Olympus has included the 747 Pan Am jumbo, classic jetset symbol of the 70s high-tech!


I'm very much liking the OM-2n: it's conveniately compact in size with very solid & well-made feel and has a super-bright viewfinder (esp. with the 1.4 lens). And I just love the feeling & sound of the shutter release. :) I think I will be shooting a lot more film in the months to come than before.
