Olympus OM system close-up and macro equipment

The Olympus OM system, which was introduced in 1972 and remained in production until 2003, included a range of lenses, lighting, stands and accessories for close-up and macrophotography that has never been equalled by any other manufacturer. This Web site aims to illustrate and document the system, and includes original photographs, descriptions of the equipment, and reproductions of the instruction leaflets and manuals.

There are also pages on going digital and on M System equipment, and indexes of product names, numbers and codes.
