What were your 'early" equipment choices and are you as enthused then as now ? Mine, On holidays in Miami (from Ireland) 30+ years ago .... NO interest in photography but went to a 'Market". fell in love with an OM1 but bought a Canon AE-1. Loved it for a week but then HATED it ....Olympus from them ....Om2n, Om2SP, OM4, OM4ti, all the lenses too ..... Them I went to Nikon for MANY years and now I'm back ... Greatest Camera EVER ....... Black OM2n ... must buy and take to grave Oh, in between I dabbled in Contax and I shot with Leica SLR for a few years too.
