All my friends keep giving me their old unwanted photography equipment.

Usually this is pretty awful stuff, old Sigma Zooms, inoperative Pentax film cameras, a Mamya/Secore  indescribable third party items for the Leica system, that I'm sure someone could used if only I knew the proper term for them.  Every once in a while I get something that's almost useful, it's kind of depressing actually.

Well today I actually got what might be a Gem.  An Olympus OM-2, the camera itself is in pretty nice condition, probably because the 50mm lens took a serious impact and almost sacrificed itself entirely.  I've got to find a couple of S76 batteries to check out the shutter.
