Olympus OM1 Chrome 35mm Film Camera + 50mm f1.8 lens and leather case

Nice example OM1 MD (not the'n') in good all round condition. Mechanically all sound, though not tested.

All shutter speeds appear to be good. Shutter nice and smooth and quiet, all controls working as they should. Exposure meter appears to work as it should (untested) with a brand new Wein battery fitted today. Lens focus ring is smooth and the aperture ring is smooth and light. Aperture blades are clean and working fine.

Optics appear clean and free from fungus and misting. The viewfinder does have some small specs visible not sure if they're on the mirror or the fresnel screen (see photos) I tried and failed to remove them with compressed air, but a more skilful person may have more success. The only obvious negatives are a missing winder cap on the bottom (see pics) and I think the seals may have had it. Cosmetically the camera is very good with the odd minor blemish/signs of wear, as can be seen in the photos.

I have owned this camera since 1991 and it's been used only sparingly in the last 10 years, hence its time to go to a new home. Generally a lovely camera that would be excellent after a good service.
