<< What I need to know is, to begin with, whether the OM-4 is a good camera.
Or should I keep looking for a 2s? Also is the 4t a significant improvement
over the 0M-4? Should I spend the extra cash?
As I've already heard a couple of views on the issue, I realise that this is
somewhat of a loaded question. But I'd like to hear from some of you are
still using OM-4s. Bottom line is that while I don't really want to throw
my money away on a lemon, I do like the features the electronic camera has
to offer. >>
I own an OM-4 and a -2S. I think both are good cameras. It's true that some
OM-4s (and OM-2S's, I believe) had circuits go bad resulting in battery
drain. I haven't heard many new battery drain stories lately, and I suspect
the bad ones may have all been weeded out by now. BTW, the OM-4 can have the
-4Ti circuit installed, but it is not considered economical. There are no
circuits left for the OM-2S.
If you have the $$$, go for the OM-4T. If you can't swing it, make sure the
OM-4 is in good shape, and try to get some return policy (I think the battery
drain problem will show in about a week or two.
Hope this helps.
