I was hoping to find someone but you are right, digital is the way to
go for most of us now. I hate the thought of putting such a nice
piece of equipment into the trash. I'll probably list them on
Freecycle or similar.
Craigslist or Ebay. You may be surprised to find just how many
collectors of old photography equipment there are out there. You likely
will not see much $$ in a sale but. . .
Also, you could try selling it (and seeing current used prices at
retail) at www.keh.com Currently, OM1's are selling <$100 while OM3's
are just over $200. That's for the bodies only.
If you have a large flea market you may tried to find someone there to
"buy" the camera from you.
While I did not try to get rid of an old camera. I had an old Olympus
camera that needed a little work. While the digital had replaced it in
most of my work, I needed the old camera for slides. An old guy at the
flea market with hundreds of old cameras fixed it like new.
Now I don't even have a need for slides.
