Olympus OM-2S Program 35mm Film SLR Camera with Tamron 35-135mm Zoom Lens and Manuals - with Batteries OM2SP
Here we have a beautiful condition Olympus OM-2S Program 35mm film SLR camera with Tamron 35-135mm F/3.5-4.5 macro focusing zoom lens, UV filter, cap and strap.
This camera is in excellent condition. It is fully functional, and comes with new batteries installed. The film compartment, battery compartment, viewfinder, and mirror box are all clean and without corrosion or debris or damage.
The lens is excellent cosmetically and mechanically perfect. The lens elements are free of marring, scratches, haze, fungus, and balsam separation. The aperture blades are quick and snappy, free of oil with minimal signs of use. The focus ring spins with perfectly weighted fluidity and the aperture ring clicks with mechanical precision. The filter threads and lens mount are unmarred and excellent.
The OM2S Program is a massive improvement over the OM2. Improved weather-sealing and the ability to function on mechanical speed when the batteries are depleted makes it superior to its earlier predecessor.
Just like the earlier OM2n, it offers shooting in both Manual mode and Aperture Priority mode by simply flicking a selector lever. But it also adds an incredibly useful Program mode, in which the camera selects all parameters of the exposure (aperture and shutter speed) and effectively turns the camera into a point-and-shoot of incredible quality (and with amazing lens options).
All accessories, focusing screens, and OM system lenses work on this camera, without any necessary changes to anything.
It's a full-featured machine that will handle anything any photographer will ask of it, while being able to accommodate those who are more interested in just pointing and shooting.
The metering system of the OM2SP works amazingly well in all shooting modes, notably metering off the film in more than one location, resulting in perfectly exposed shots when shooting in Automatic mode. Convenient exposure compensation dial lets the photographer shoot in Automatic mode while still retaining a +/- 2 stops of exposure control for artistic and technical shooting.
The included zoom lens is incredibly versatile. It offers the ability to shoot from wide-angle to standard focal lengths and portraiture, making it an excellent lens for nearly all types of day-to-day photography. These include street photography, architectural and landscape shots, snapshots, and general purpose photography.
This is just a fantastic machine for someone who's serious about creating excellent photos, or for those just starting out on the journey to photographic bliss.
The camera will be packaged securely and shipped immediately.
