    I found this camera at work. It had a endoscope attachment (I'll post pix later) but no "real" lens. Are these collectible? It has been in a surgery department for probably 30 years so it's VERY clean. I did not attempt to clean it before these pix and most of the dust is probably from the bag I brought it home in. Also, where would be a good place to find a lens for it. I'd like to play around with it since it seems to function perfectly.

    Thoughts?

    These are popular and desirable as user cameras, especially in clean
    condition. They are not rare though.

    Thanks:)

    I'll keep on the dig for a lens. I'm really impressed with the condition of this one.

    Look around E-bay for an OM mount lens, Lots to choose from. You can find them with little to no damage at a reasonable price. I keep a Vivitar 400mm f/5.6 on my OM-1 at all times and all I spent on that lens was $60 (USD)
