1975 Olympus OM-2 MD is an upgraded OM-1 MD with the addition of Aperture Priority metering. This black version is my father's camera which was purchased in 1975 at the Rhein-Main Airbase PX. The OM-2 MD has the distinction of being the first camera to meter directly off the film surface instead of metering the light entering through the lens. Metering a la OTF, not TTL.  This camera has an  F. Zuiko f1.8 / 50mm lens.
