“The OM-28 Modern Deluxe loves to be lightly caressed and nimbly cajoled, so its steadfast notes and lighter-than-air harmonics launch and waft like the sumptuous aromas of intoxicating spirits. As with an elite sports car or a vintage OM of old, when it’s driven in the zone where the gears change friction-free, boy does it soar!”
