I earler reounted my experiene with Jessops who delivered a fair condition
OM-2SP to my local store instead of an excellent condition OM-2. Anyway, the
manageress of the store (bless her) said she could do the OM-2SP for £110. My
35mm f/2 is on its way and I've been offered a 21 f/3.5 and I'm thinking
Oh dear, my savings! I daredn't look!
I think Olympus should look at we Zuikoholics who are still committed to
buying and expanding our OM systems and say "Well, maybe there is still a
market for manual focus" - maybe its time to push the system again so mass
production could reduce the price of the new gear.
I did send a long message recently to Olympus UK, USA and Japan saying this
kind of thing which they have apparently forwarded to marketing and R&D.
Since tech stocks have plummeted and after the y2k fiasco, maybe people are
thinking its time for a return to a bit more 'human control'.
