I always thought the OM's were known for their bright viewfinders. All SLR
viewfinders will tend to get dim with slow lenses, though. With the OM-2S,
OM-3(Ti), and OM-4(Ti) you can use either the Olympus 2-series screens or the
Beattie screens without affecting the meter. I know the 2-series screens
affect the meter readings on the OM-1(n) and OM-2(n), but I'm not sure about
the Beattie screens. Does anyone out there use the Beattie screens on a -1 or

Hope this helps
