I like the OM 2S for its ease of use and spot metering ability. The down side 
of this body is that the meters occasionally die from terminal circuit 
failure.  When that happens you will have a nice parts camera as the new 
circuits are not really available (well there is a stash or at least a few I 
know about) and if they were, it is not economically feasible to repair them. 
Bottom line is it cost a heck of a lot more to fix it than it is worth.  So 
what do you do if it dies?  Buy another one.  Can't give you any advice on 
the tripod, however on the camera body, just treat it like a good pet . . . 
love the heck out of it until it is gone and then miss it but get another.
