I'll probably never get rid of it, to be honest. I did part with a couple of bodies (OM-3Ti and OM-4Ti) but they weren't cameras that I'd had for as long as the M-1 and OM-1, which I've owned and used for forty years.
The OM's are such great cameras, even the slightly less prestigious versions - my brother's OM40 is easily my most favourite camera of all those I've ever used (including modern Nikon and Canon DSLRs)
It's just such a perfect shape and size and so nicely made; the controls are laid out exactly where I can use them without thinking and the metering is modern enough and versatile enough to make it practical. The OM-10 that I inherited isn't quite as nice to use (though then again it doesn't eat batteries in the same way)
Sadly none of that kit has been used for quite a few years now; despite years of insisting that I didn't want or need a camera in my phone I use it almost every single day and the results are easily good enough for most of what I'm doing.
