Olympus didn't exactly match Minolta's Maxxum when it responded to the AF challenge with its OM 77 AF. Like the Maxxum 7000 (and also 5000) it had a single AF sensor. The Olympus is strictly auto with the ability to shift its program, but no shutter priority, aperture priority, or manual to be found. I snagged on at auction for about 15 USD complete with the Olympus 35-70 f3.5-4.5 zoom. Olympus never offered an extensive lens array for this camera or a more professional body. By the time the OM 77 AF debuted, Minolta was already developing the "i" series line of Maxxums. Canon and Nikon were steadily developing more lenses for their systems and in a few years would catch and surpass Minolta in system offerings. Pentax held its own as it offered a nice feature set in its AF SLRs. The OM 77 AF with its 35-70 zoom has less range (but wider aperture) and focuses slower than its fixed lens IS series cameras. The IS-10/20/30 28-110 performs better at most settings and offers a wide range so it's no wonder that I picked up one for so little.
