Maybe it's the spring weather that's making its way ... I am thinking of buying a new camera, and I wanted to know if anyone here has some experience with the Olympus OM-3Ti or OM-4Ti.
My reason for looking into Olympus is that I already have Olympus cameras, the OM-2 and the OM-20. The latter is shit, I only got that for a photo course at summer school. However, the OM-2 is superb. I'll need to get it checked though to see if everything is still working properly.
Why am I looking into a new camera? Well, should my OM-2 be ever seriuosly damaged, it may be beyond repair because Olympus is running out of spare parts for this camera (it's well over 22 years old).
Why Olympus again? Hmm, I've always had Olympus cameras ... their shutter and aperture setting with one hand is great. Plus, I have many lenses for the OM-2, which I don't want to have to "throw away", and Zuiko lenses are very good.
In favour of Olympus:
+ lenses available
+ used to camera type
+ good experience with previous models, esp. OM-2
- exotic, thus limited second-hand market for lenses
- withdrawing from the 35mm segment
- used to have a time (after OM-2) where their quaility was not outstanding
Basically, I am trying to find out how Olympus' products are rated today?

The reviews sound encouraging. Anyone here with hands-on experience? Please, share your thoughts with me on this.
