NotesIn 1979 Olympus updated the OM1 to the OM1n & the OM2 to the OM2n. Differences where minor in both cases, for the OM2n they included moving the reset button to the on off dial. Showing exposure compensation and flash readiness in the viewfinder and metering to 120 seconds instead of 60. otherwise the cameras were essentially the same.
