1) Get the T32, you'll never be sorry. They're great units. Sell the Vivitar (Do you really want some off brand in your bag?? <g>) Seriously, I just like the T32's and they are easily hooked together using the TTL cords and connectors. I don' know about the Vivitar.

2) The 2x converter is only designed for a few lenses.100mm/F2.8, 135mm/F2.8, 135mm/F3.5, 200mm/F4, 200mm/F5 and 100-200mm/F5 zoom. It has a pretty shallow well that the rear element of the prime lens fits to, so many Zuiko's physically can not be mounted. I don't know about the quality with lenses other than those listed. Check Gary Reeses's test pages. Top price I'd pay is $150. BTW, I never use mine.

I have just purcharsed my first "serious" OM!! ...an absolutely gorgeous OM4
that looks like it's never been used (with box, manuals and even the original
brochure from 1984 or whenever!)...yes,Yes,YES!!!! (the guy traded it in to get a C*n*n Ixus!!!!). It also had with it a 35-105 f3.5 Zuiko zoom (which I bought
as I've been looking for something in this range, and they threw it in for a
bargain price...and it had the original Olympus lens bag!).

There were two other pieces of kit that he's holding for me, but I thought I'd
ask a few questions about...

1) Olympus T32 Flashgun (asking £59) ...after recenly purchasing the Vivitar
3500 do I need another flashgun?

2) Olympus T/C 2xA teleconverter (£?) ...I already have a Vivitar 2x
Teleconverter which is a lot smaller, and this one's only compatable with
certain lenses(?) How much should I look to pay for this thing?

Do I or don't I, that is the question.

All help appreciated...
