    A OM-2n with Zuiko 50mm 1.4 all in original wrapping and boxes walked through the door tonight and I couldnt past it up. So heres my new toy with lens all wrapped up ready to go. I plan on shooting it up tomorrow. I got several other things with it but these were my personal keepers.

    Strang thing is I value the boxes more than the camera itself.


    I have a long family history of men who designed and sold packaging. If I had to bet my grandfather probbly sold that packaging to Olympus.


    And I do plan to post a few picture after I get the first roll of film developed. Heres what I now have on my desk at work and then my camera. Every bit of that is OM stuff.

    The boxes are rarer than the cameras or lenses...

    The OM-1 and OM-2 were great,small,compact camera designs, far ahead of their time.

    I have an OM-1 and love it. Do you know what is different about the OM1 and the OM-2? Also, is that a Minolta Himatic on the bottom shelf?

    That seems like a pretty awesome score. I love seeing old photography boxes with retro version of the modern logos.

    Don't mean to derail your thread here but when I saw Neat Find under the active topics section I thought it'd be blurry cat II :lmao:
    But ah, you only have 46 posts, so you probably have no idea what I'm talking about.
