The OM2000 was the last OM body released by Olympus, in 1997. It was a body made by Cosina with an OM lens mount. For that reason, many Olympus fans do not consider it a true OM body.
The OM2000 was compatible with all the Olympus OM lenses, and accessories attached to the finder. Everything else, from winders or motor drives to finder screens or databacks was not compatible with this camera. The 2000 was also missing the OM's distinctive feature, the shutter speed ring around the bayonet mount: on the OM2000 the shutter speed knob is on the top plate of the camera.
Despite all this, the OM2000 was an economical way to use the OM lenses. It had a mechanical shutter and manual exposure with a spot meter, a top speed of 1/2000 and a flash sync speed of 1/125. It had an exposure meter switchable from center-weighted metering to spot metering. It was released together with two S-Zuiko zoom lenses, the 35-70mm f/3.5-4.8 (only sold as a kit with the OM2000) and the 70-210mm f/4.5-5.6. It was also released with the S20 flash unit, that could be used in manual and auto mode, with no TTL automation.
It was only released in anthracite color.
