As far as I recall, Chris, the star reset on the shutter speed ring with a 
button on the bottom corner of the lens throat is a feature of the OM-2 (not 
-2n, which added a similar function to the On-Off switch), so there is nothing 
like that on any other body than the OM-2. Sadly, it's very hard to find an 
OM-2 manual - almost all commonly available are for the OM-2n but are not so 
titled on the cover.

But if you need one, maybe you can guess who to ask? And if you guess 
correctly, I wonder what the prize might be?

What’s the star reset button? There isn’t anything like that on an OM-4T
is there?
