Interesting. I have often heard that OM camera bodies were light, flimsy and 
just plain unreliable, which I found to not be true in the slightest, but that 
most all thought the lenses were superior. The business about the f stop clicks 
is to me way our there.

The video that Bill posted was a flash to the past for me. I had forgotten 
that newcomers to Zuikos were often put off by the clicks. Galen Rowell 
used that as his excuse for not using Olympus. Said they weren't rugged 
enough. I have a Nikkor 50 macro, bought new, that I cannot use currently 
because the grease turned to glue, rugged as it may be, but I've never had 
any problem with the mechanics of an OM lens.
