Donor camera needed - Olympus 35 SP

  1. Hi Folks, apologies in advance if this is a bit too forward, but I messed up the read element of my camera when I tried to clean it with white vinegar.

    White vinegar, even though it's recommended on the web for fungus, it's very hazardous for lenses, my element is completely etched out and resembles more of a ground glass than a lens element.

    I am looking to see if any of you kind folks have a parts/donor unit somewhere for a fair price of course.

    Many thanks, Ralf
  2. I have seen that some P&S Oylmpus models are desirable, but as no one jumped in here I did a "look around" While they may be not sooo rare they are apparently desirable. And as you have already realized, finding an otherwise broken but repairable 2nd is the Solomon dilema, a 1/2 a baby upon thee.

    Good Luck
  3. The SP is probably the top model of the Olympus 35 series, and very much appreciated. That G Zuiko lens is really something. Best luck in your quest!
