Nice to hear from a working pro using Oly!

If the glass is in good working order, I'd say go for it. Below are low 
and high prices that I've seen this gear for in BC over the past few 
OM-4 $425 - 995 (yes, $995 for a plain 4, albeit mint!)
85/2 - $200 - 295
65-200 $ 175 - 275
135/3.5 $75 - 150
not certain on the remainder, but if this kit includes two working 
OM-4s, it sounds like a steal.
