John, et al;

I often see IS-3s in the field.  It surprises me in a way because whenever I
ask about them in a camera store I get the same blank look and am told that the
camera was not a success for Olympus.  But there they are, in peoples hands.  I
rarely see OM gear. I'm gonna keep my eyes open in the future though for list
members. Especially in the 4 corners area.
