Yeah, the price on the OM-3 is high, but the price for the 35-80/2.8 seems 
pretty reasonable.  Unfortunately, with the OM-3Ti around, the OM-3's always 
going to be considered the "poor relation" (just like my OM-4's considered a 
poor relation of the 4Ti).

Ultimately, I'd recommend a sale via eBay.  List members are too knowledgeable 
to get goo..., er, *high* prices out of.  ;-)
